You Can't Go Home Again

Received an e-mail from an old friend this morning, saying that he's accepted a job in Sicily (Italy, not Ohio), and will be moving there in about three weeks (two days before I go back to Colorado to visit, no less).

Matt is one of the last of my close friends from the late '90s still in the Boulder area, and his departure is one more break with a pretty fun time in my life.

While I've long since accepted that it would be impossible to recreate that time -- and it took a surprisingly long time to really get that -- it's still always a little bit of a blow to see one more change. While I'm hard-pressed to think of much else that's stayed consistent from that time, there's just a small bit of pain as I get one more sign that nothing ever stays the same.
