Many of our best, most memorable moments come when they are least anticipated. Maybe that is what makes them so beautiful. Particularly touching is spending time with long-standing friends. People we might not see every day, or often, but when we do, we are reminded of why we became friends in the first place.

The comfort that comes from familiarity and like-mindedness is cosmically cozy. Catching up, sharing progresses, swapping stories, spending easy time together. Time that seems timeless. Flowing. Drifting. Standing. Chatting. Sitting. Sipping. Dipping. Lounging. Breezing. Without many concerns, for that precious slice of time.

The photo posted with this entry is that of friendship stones. In the spirit of friendship I am posting Intro by XX, with its easy, catchy beat. One can imagine a line of friends, arm in arm, kicking out their feet in unison, with the rhythm. Back and forth, side to side, smiling and happy. No words necessary for this one. Just rhythm and music. And maybe, just maybe, the escape of an irresistible bit of hum . . . .
