    Friendships Fade Over Time

    I am in my early 30s. Is it normal to feel that friendships have changed since my college days and early 20s? I feel like I need my friends less and less in life. I do not have as many friends as I use to in my college days and late 20s, but I feel like I have come to accept...

    Two Butterflies.......

    Watch with me, the butterflies dancing by, until the journey's end. Not knowing where their travels lead, in light and love, my friend. Flecks of light, across the azure sky, gently they descend. Settle weary wings on your open hand, in faith and trust, my friend. Carry our...

    Could That Be Our End?

    Just recently, a friendship that I didn't expect to form suddenly came to be, for only 48 hours, and then it was gone. The whole thing wasn't just for 48 hours, but months, due to other circumstances and factors, but to my pleasant surprise, there was a sudden, favorable change...
