  1. I was depressed about being away from home, from my friends, my girlfriend, etc. Though I didn’t know it then, when I hear about the symptoms of clinical depression now I realize that’s what I was going through, except when I was visiting you guys or at fighter practice, or at an event.

  2. Yes, exactly! It’s so nice to realize one is remembered well. :)

    Re G’ville: aww, thank you, Rick! That’s so sweet of you to say that. What were you depressed about, if I may ask? Also, I must confess: I didn’t realize at the time that you were depressed — so either you hid it quite well, or we were far more effective than I’d have ever dreamed possible! :)

    You’re quite right also in that it is a real pleasure to renew dear and old acquaintances. Thank you for letting me know.

  3. I’ve had similar experiences since this new rush of old SCA friends getting on FB. Some of the names just leap to mind though I haven’t thought of them in decades, while others languish in the ‘I know that face, but…’ file. And what surprises me the most is people whom I thought didn’t know me from Adam back then sending enthusiastic friend requests.

    As for remembering you, dear Collie, when I first heard about the Internet I immediately set about trying to track you down. I don’t know if I ever told you this, but if it weren’t for you and Guthrum I might not have survived my year in G’ville, but your friendship and tutelage gave me a reason to ignore the otherwise crushing depression I was going through. I’ve never forgotten you, and could not be happier to have found you again. :-)
