You've Got a Friend
Posted 1/30/2012 12:31:00 PM

Friendships can last a lifetime. Even when those friendships lay dormant, they can resurface quickly and unexpectedly. You find yourself picking up where you left off, making you wonder where all the time in between went.

 

When I was in college, I had a friend, Dave Binder. Dave would perform at our school's Rathskeller(we called it “The Rat”)on folk night. He would often ask me to come up onstage and join him for a song or two. It was one of those things where we just gelled when we sang, our voices blending in perfect harmony.

 

These days, Dave entertains all over the country and in the Caribbean. From time to time he performs a James Taylor tribute concert. He happened to be playing at Showcase Live over the weekend. So I decided to contact him and tell him we wanted to see his show. Well, one thing led to another and I ended up onstage to sing another song or two, just as we did in college.

 

Funny thing, when we met backstage before the show, you would never know that so much time had passed since we last sang. We picked up where we left off without skipping a beat. And I guess that's what good friendships are all about. No matter how long it's been, when you meet once again, it's a truly magical experience.
