Since we moved cross-country, from New York City to Tucson, “friends and friendship” have been on my mind. As we left New York City, we said see you soon to our dear, old friends, with a deep-seated intention of staying in touch, and visiting often! And when we arrived in Tucson, we said hello to our new friends, with an equally clear and strong intention of creating relationships with people with whom we can share our day-to-day happenings, and especially with whom we can laugh till it hurts. (A priority for me!)
These 13 Quotes, a Baker’s Dozen on Friendship are dedicated to both my old friends and new friends, who, as Anais Nin said, “represent a world in us, a world possibly not born until they arrive, and it is only by this meeting that a new world is born!” Thank you for creating new worlds for and with me!
