Recently my sister commented on the fact that despite the fact that it is some times difficult for me to talk to people (and it seems to be equally difficult for them to talk to me) apparently when I do make friends the strength of of the minority of those bonds often surprises people, myself included. My sleeping habits have been the topic of quite a few (for the most part friendly) discussions within my family. Due to the fact that several of my friends live in vastly different time zones from me and in several different countries besides the US , or if they’re relatively local I only get to talk to them a few times a week due to things that neither one of us can control. When I do see them I make the most the time I get. this has been known to cause more than a little consternation at home as I am still physically dependent on others in order to get to bed.Regardless of this I refuse to change my habits.As previously stated I seem to attract all manner of people who might not otherwise be said to have anything in common,well almost nothing in much you count the fact that almost every one of them if you asked of them will probably tell you that I’m one of the best things since sliced bread. I know this and actually kind of shocking and very much appreciated. In my life I had received relatively few pieces of personal mail which I will allow is now becoming the rule rather than the exception for most people but it’s nice to get mail occasionally now. Simon and Garfunkel had it right friendship is meant to be a bridge over troubled water and it is a priceless and rare person indeed he is willing to stand in the middle of that bridge when you’re happy and be happy with you as well as when your life gets shaken up like a soda pop bottle and that bridge seems to be the only stable thing you have in this world, and you feel like you’ve cried long enoug to make it necessary to rebuild Noah’s Ark at least twice. For as a rare and I know this kind of person is I have somehow meet several. Whatever their perception of forever is ,know that I will be grateful or the friendships I have long after forever is said and done with.
