I find myself often wrapped up in the lives of friends. I take friendship very seriously. It goes back to another time and another place when you put your life in a friend’s hands and also accepted responsibility for theirs.
Friendship can be strong or fragile, depending on the personalities of those involved. I’m a difficult person to befriend. I’m opinionated, stubborn, arrogant, maddening and blunt. I challenge my friends to think, to consider and to weigh the consequences of their actions and I hope they will treat me with the same bluntness, honesty and compassion.
