“loneliness is the first thing which God’s eye named, not good.” – john milton
“friendship is unnecessary, like philosophy, like art. it has no survival value; rather it is one of those things that give value to survival.” – c. s. lewis
the other day i was blog hopping, i’m sure i had numerous other productive things i
could should have been doing, but since i was occupied with sliding down into the pit of dispair, i didn’t feel like doing any of them. and i came across this post by trapped under something heavy. (a blog name i love, because who doesn’t love when harry met sally.) and as i read i stopped sliding and started hurtling. hurtled right on down into the depths. i miss having my plans preempted by all kinds of very, very important diversions that having friends brings along. i miss sitting in someone else’s house, having a cup of coffee or a glass of wine or a margarita or all three and feeling just as comfortable as i do in my own house. i miss having friends who open the door and come in as they’re knocking. i just miss friends.
