I have every excuse for not writing…but it would be the same you’ve used before…so I will spare you, and return with where “I am”…thinking about friendship…and because my own words escape me presently…I will share my thoughts and feelings with you through the eloquent words and images, of others.
The quotes were found through reading and internet jaunts. The images are from Nicole Shau, an extremely talented, multi-media artist, who I recently stumbled upon…Her work can be explored and viewed on this site: http://natalieshau.carbonmade.com/ and she has a Facebook page under her name, ENJOY:

“Anger is the fluid love bleeds when it’s cut.” (C.S. Lewis)
“If you judge people, you have no time to love them.” (Mother Theresa)
“Friendship involves many things, but above all, the power of going out of one’s self and appreciating what is noble and loving in another.” (Thomas Hughes)

The greatest friendships are not serene, they are truthful, accepting, and…fun.
