Mentioning the possibility is more than enough for me right now. I don't even want to think about what it would look like. I could say that I'd go in once in a while, and I might. But it wouldn't be the same. Once a week isn't even the same as twice a week. Once every once in a while... I'm not sure it would be any better than never for me.

When I was going to move, we talked about phone sessions. But we both knew that it wouldn't work. I think seeing him occasionally would be the same thing. We'd say it in order to ease the discomfort, but we wouldn't really.

People tend not to. Even the best of friends move away and say they'll be in touch. Everyone leaves, and leaving is always more final than we like to think. Life moves on, and without the other person moving along with you, you just drift apart. Getting together again is just painful and awkward.

Or maybe it's just me. Maybe people just don't keep in touch with me.
