"She's a friend, a good friend ..."
"We've been friends forever ...?
"We've been friends forever." That hasn't been my experience. In fact, I think I have more friends now that ever - and I don't have that many.
Somehow, very early, I didn't learn the knack of making friendships that lasted. The connections just weren't deep enough.
One friendship goes back a long time - but only maybe a decade.
And there's another one from my late teens.
But there's no use going to a high school reunion. Nothing really to re-unite with.
I think of personal development stuff I've read, about beliefs we have and how those have a big impact on our experiences.
What do I have to say? I will see how things go from this point forward in my life.
There are a number of friendships - and friendships in the making - that feel stronger than just about anything I've had before.
I think too of feeling - that feeling of liking someone.
Of easy pleasure in someone's company.
I know that most from animals.
Making friends .... hmmm.
So, again, I will see how things go from this point on in my life.
In general, things feel generally warmer.

and about friendship in my life.
