We slowly drifted apart over the early months of 2008, and by the next summer our relationship was little more than a basketful of memories we would often dig our hands into for warmth.

The richest relationship of my life had ended.

Even now, almost a decade later, I look on that time with such tender fondness. There was nothing digital about my relationship with Lila. It was alive and organic as the veiny leaves of the oak leaves surrounding us that June. Incidentally, it was during that time I first created a social media account, so the entire concept was still somewhat alien to me. Facebook was fun and exciting, but certainly not all-consuming. I had only received my first flip phone a few months prior, and the notion of smartphones—carrying the World Wide Web in your pocket—was still a few years away.
