The month got away from me and I forgot to check in. Recent weeks have given me many opportunities to think about friendship. I wonder how others define this relationship. For me friendships have been a spontaneous unfolding of care for another. I usually encounter people from the vantage point of potential friend until it is demonstrated otherwise. Friendship is one of the greatest gifts in life because we choose those spend time with.
In my book, Daphne and Thekla friendship plays an essential role in how Thekla's life unfolds. I think it may be similar for many of us. Friendships mold, guide, and support us in ways that we seldom pause to examine. I wish you all the treasure of friends.
