And so, I have spent the day in nostalgia-realizing the wealth of friendships that I am fairly stewing in...Thickening plots and distinctively flavoured- better with time, and spicier too!
I am so very thankful today for my friends, and for my family-and for the friends who have become a family. Today I went back to a website to commemorate my friend Doug, and found a poem there that struck my once again about how life can be lived so very openly without fear, without worry or cynicism..by this one man...and maybe, by us all.
I am heading into a new year.
I am only hoping to be so open.
