Brief

This will be brief.

In the last few days, especially after the blog episodes Flatliners, and 9 1/2 Weeks (Aren’t movie titles for blog posts fun?) I’ve encountered some curiously protective and loving thoughts from friends… nooooo, not the Circle Friends I mentioned in Circle of Friends Parts 1 and 2, The Martian, and Rashomon, but Ride or Die, I’ll Follow You into the Dark… friends.

Sharing thoughts like (about my first bike ride since surgery), “It still feels too soon, but I’m glad you enjoyed it.” Or (on a walk through the neighborhood), “Thank you for sharing your beautiful being with me.”

And I’m more grateful than I can say.

So for all of you, whether in post threads, DMs, or in person, I want to tell you all that I love you for who you are, and who you have shown yourselves to be, for me. You have convinced me that we belong to each other, and I will hold you in my heart, forever.

  1. I’ve also discovered in recent months that the friends I was sure would be there for me just couldn’t be, for their own reasons. It’s made me more grateful for the ones who aren’t necessarily in the inner ring of friends but who have been steadily there and who check up on me. And I have to credit myself for figuring it out and waking up every morning. It sounds to me like you have made a similar discovery.
