I went to my local club recently for the first time in over a year--just to drop off some minis to a friend. I didn't hang around but did say hi to everyone there.
That short visit made me realise that other than the painting and the collecting and the playing of different games, what I miss most are my friends.
I've made a lot of good friends at that club, many of whom I consider among my best lifelong friends. So even if I'm not playing any games, I will be going back when they open up for the new year.
It's too easy to take the friendship and the camaraderie for granted.
