I cannot be sure how we met. It's foggy. I am pretty sure who the connection is but how we actually came across one another here and sealed the deal--it's foggy.

I come across a lot of people here though--have for a long time now. Most come and go (often by my own hand) as I insist on a very small circle. But through the many ups and downs of my somewhat checkered tenure here, there is at least one constant--Sahira.

For  many people EP represents a kind of "easy come easy go", or "out of sight, out of mind" mentality, and that is fine. But every once in a while, if you are lucky, you may find yourself making a real friend here--someone who actually misses you if you are gone and let's you know it. That is what Sahira did for me. She never let me feel forgotten, and in fact never lost contact with me, which, when you are going through a rough time and you feel as if you do not much matter, having someone say they miss you can turn things around, often.

She is, in a word, and I must say, this word means a lot to me---loyal. And this loyalty, combined with wit and an almost overwhelming generosity and neverending fountain of sincere love towards others, makes her remarkable. Definately.
