I'm back :)
It was a good week work wise, but I'm beyond tired and it's taking me some time to get back to normal. It was fab to see dude at the airport though. The angels sang and hearts popped all round. *grin*
I'm thoughtful today. So make of this what you will.
Life is like a little town in Italy.
Some times, you're walking through narrow, cobbled streets where you stop every now and then to peep into quaint little shops or fish out your camera to capture a moment that makes you stop in your tracks. Other times, you wander into a piazza peppered with flower and pizza stalls, fountains and street lamps.
Both equally breath-taking, both equally beautiful.
We've got many friends, Dude and I. And I've come to realise that some may need us more than others. I've also come to realize that some may value this friendship, more than others.
Yes, these are lessons you learn in life - blah blah blah. But today was different.
What brought it on? I'm not sure really.
Perhaps something that suddenly placed itself gently on my peaceful pile of tolerance...kinda like a cherry on 2 scoops of vanilla ice-cream, floating in chocolate sauce. Yeah, I've made my peace with it..but I do intend on being a bit more careful.
You're my friend and you are important to me. I will find you when you don't need me, in your piazza, surrounded by your 100 friends. I will smile and hug you, even when I know you're only being cordial and you're eager to get back to the momentary 'in' crowd.
I will also find you, when the chips are down. When you worry and are not sure of yourself...and you choose to sit alone, in a narrow street somewhere.
We're always here if you need us. But friendship, is to be valued. And I think we've all watched enough movies on the subject, to know that by now, si?
So till later...I'm watching you.
*points 2 fingers at you...then points to eyes*
