Weird How Things Work Sometimes

Yesterday my friend Bruce posted a video on my facebook wall. Just a friend sharing something cool with another friend. If you haven’t seen it yet take a few minutes and watch it. I’ll wait.

American Dream from Ian Ruhter : Alchemist on Vimeo.

The video is amazing on it’s own, but there was something deeper for me in it. One of the guys in the video, David, was one of my best friends in high school. We haven’t seen each other for about 17 years. Maybe more? It blew me away to see him, so I did some research and found his shop. Here’s where it gets even crazier. His shop, is located about 50 yards off of my bike commute. His commute takes him within 50 yards of my house! We’ve been so close for the past seven years of our lives and never even knew it.

Last night, on my bike commute home, I stopped by and saw my friend Dave. We chatted for about an hour and caught up on life and what’s been happening. I even got to see in person the photograph that he made with Ian. All from another video posted on facebook wall. Weird how things work sometimes.
