I have had a bad break or two in the last week, and I am taking the time to catch up on old friends.
Many of them are in bad shape and career wise they are lost. The financial mess has impacted marriages and lives.
I was amazed at how many friends instantly remembered my name and voice. A few of the friends are dead and one who was allegedly dead turned up alive.
If you have a job in this mess consider yourself blessed. However, it is important to always network with old friends and see where life has taken them.
