We had some friends stay over for the weekend and it was lovely chatting and catching up on the news.
I found myself saying more than once, …Ha, so I am not the only one who does that(thinks that/fears that etc.).
It occurred to me how valuable it is to have friends where we can share these inconsequential things and realise we all have much the same fears, hopes, dreams etc. It is reassuring that whatever our experiences in life might be, it is likely shared by many.
Perhaps this is the basis for our friendships.
NB The photo was taken by me at Lake Ballard (a dry salt lake) in a remote area north of Kalgoorlie in Western Australia. The sculpture was created by well known sculptor Antony Gormley from the UK.
