In our lives, we interact with thousands, even millions of people.They come in all ages, all sizes, all colors, and all personalites.Some are long-time friends, some are acquaintances, some are co-workers, some we've known in passing.

These are our associations, part of the overall kaleidoscope of life.Some we've forgotten with time, others we will never forget.But each and every one becomes a part of our owns lives in some way, and remains a part of us to the day we die.

An unusual write, but one that is very thought-provoking.
