i have made a friend over the last several months. it was not expected. it was unexpected. the support is distinctive and disarming. i am seen when i am not aware of being looked upon. the uneven quality of my moods are evident outside my manipulation.
i have all but completely morphed into an almost complete curmudgeon. my romantic aspect would like to envision myself as a spiritual warrior or some such fantasy. truthfully tho now, i would be at best a warrior gone to pasture, sentenced to a life of teacher and hopefully sage.
but this new friendship that has developed has lifted the lid on my lethargy and let new light into the aperture. life continues to surprise me. friendship continues to delight me. gratitude continues to ground me. working with others continues to baffle me. puzzles continue to intrigue me. french soft cheeses continue to satisfy me.
