I miss you guys. I miss camp. I'm very excited to see many of you again on the 30th, but there are still so many of you that I don't keep in contact with as well. I haven't seen any of of you since New Years (except Ian, but he's my next door neighbor) I haven't seen many of you since camp, and still more of you I haven't seen in well over a year and if so for only breif intervals. The cleche goes "YPI is not a place, but a state of mind" but now I disagree with that; YPI is not a state of mind either, it is people, and friendships, and the energy created when a group of friends are together furthering their passions in the arts and more importantly their love for each other. I miss that most of all. I can't think about YPI with out a few images, such as a guitar, grass, frisbies, the clouds or stars, that "piss-yellow" (as my classmates at SBS call it) paint on Westovers outer walls, and specific faces that I won't mention so as not to hurt the feelings of those I might forget. At my second year of YPI I learned more than ever that you can't go back in time and re-live an experiance, but as long as we all have our common passions and goals and friendships that doesnt matter because we can share our nostalgic memories and create new, posibly better ones. It saddens me that I'm already loosing contact with many of you, but as most of us (us as in the main group of campers I happened to hang out with) head off to college I hope that problem doesnt increase. Really, I hope it becomes less of a problem, but I'm afraid of setting that high standard. In any case, I just wanted to tell you all that I miss being with you all, I miss the people that define YPI, and really this whole post is just a streem of conciousness stemming from that feeling that will just turn into ramblings if I don't stop it now. I love you all as my closest friends and I impatiantly await the oficial reunion this summer and any other time I may see you agan in the near future.
