I recently got caught up with two old friends that I hadn't seen in about 15 years. Both were good friends from childhood. One was a college roommate.
Both had Modern Orthodox educations. Neither was particularly religious.
One is now touring with Fountains of Wayne.
The other has become a Breslover Chossid.
I'm excited about one, slightly confused and disappointed about the other.
And equally disappointed at myself, because I think my feelings should be reversed.
