Friendship: How has a friend changed you or your perspective on the world this year? Was this change gradual, or a sudden burst?
This year I found myself needing to try harder in the outreach department. And what's hard is that there are lessons I learned before that I found myself having to relearn. Sweet Girl and I once agreed that we tend to assume that the other one of us is too busy, too groovy or too something to want to make time to hang out with the other one. This of course, is pure nonsense! I love Sweet Girl! I'd rather eat sushi with her than anyone else in the world. And then there's Doc. Who wouldn't want to hang out with her? These two women have provided me with comfort, conversation and diversion this year when I desperately needed it. All I had to do was ask. That's the trick. Ask, invite, call, email, text. Friendship is all around us, we just need to be daring enough to wade into the water.
An editorial comment: I got my "secret identities confused." This is what happens when you haven't blogged in a while. Sweet Girl is Pseudo's mommy. Dorothy moved south and I miss her dearly! I think we should have a store reunion with all my favorite staff people!
