So many memories are twirling around in my head. The last time I saw my great uncle was twelve years ago. So much time has passed by, but the memories are still so vivid.

I feel horrible for not having been in touch more often, and there is a postcard on my desk from the skiing trip that I wanted to send to him and my aunt, but I had not found time to write, and this little postcard adds a lot to my feelings of guild right now.

Twelve years is a long period of time. If only they were living closer nearby. I had thought about traveling abroad with The Boyfriend to visit them when I am finally done with this stupid PhD.

So many thoughts are twirling in my head right now.
