Friendship is unnecessary, like philosophy, like art…  It has no survival value; rather it is one of those things which give value to survival.
   ―    C.S. Lewis

Flowers

I do not seek to place you
In a little box named Joan,
I seek instead to understand
Why thru you I have grown.
Your name is not a label
I have placed upon a box,
You are instead a flower
On a path that I have crossed.
Do not fear, Little Flower
The longing in your chest
We are all a little lonely
And perhaps, that is best;
From loneliness we learn
To reach out to each other —
So on our paths of life we may
Become as little flowers.
So if along your life’s path
There among the rocks
You spy a little flower
Growing in a box…
Look a little closer
And a beauty it may show,
And by this bit of beauty
You may simply grow.
And growing, you will go
Further down the path
Seeing truly each little flower
You may encounter after that.

I enjoy life and I question everything and I want to share my joy and my questions.  At the bottom line this is all I have to offer you and your capacity for the same is all you have to offer me.  Remember one thing – though you many never find what you’re looking for, I will still – always – help you look.

An apology is a friendship preserver,
an antidote for hatred,
never a sign of weakness;
It costs nothing but one’s pride,
always saves more than it costs,
and is a device needed in every home.

Almost all of our fellow-beings deceive us, but a few of us have known the joy of meeting a woman or a man whose sincerity and frankness were genuine, who in almost every situation has behaved according to our wishes, and who in our most difficult moments has not forsaken us.  Those few are familiar with that marvelous feeling: confidence.  With at least one person they are able for a little while each day to lift the heavy visor of their helmets, breathe freely, and show their faces and their hearts without fear.

Well fitted for friendship is he whom men have not disgusted with mankind, and who, believing and knowing that there are a few noble men, a few great minds, a few delightful souls scattered through the crowd, never tires of searching for them, and loves them even before he has found them.

The glory of friendship is not the outstretched hand, not the kindly smile, nor the joy of companionship; it is the spiritual inspiration that comes to one when you discover that someone else believes in you and is willing to trust you with a friendship.

As I love nature,
as I love singing birds,
and gleaming stubble,
and flowing rivers,
and morning and evening,
and summer and winter,
I love thee,
my Friend.
