"It is one of the blessings of old friends that you can afford to be stupid with them". - Ralph Waldo Emerson
I know friendship is very important. When a hard winter blows you into a lonely corner it is such a relief to be lifted out by a faithful old friend. To have a person who you can be completely yourself with, nothing to prove, that is were you can begin to open up with out too much work. Sometimes I think lonely is just a default setting in our contemporary culture. In spite of the rise of social media we are still aching to be touched and desperate to be heard.
Take a step towards renewing a friendship today. A coffee date, and old fashioned letter, maybe a "just because" phone call. Make a little love happen today. It helps.
