When Love Manifests Itself in Friendship . . .

When Love Manifests Itself in Friendship . . . or
How Fine a Thin Line May Sometimes Be
It was my friend Barb Rush who tuned me on to Captain Janeway
. . . . . It was my friend Karen who turned me on to YouTube.com
Somewhere along the way between those two enlightenments, yet another cool friend turned me on to Seven of Nine
and that I have been a Trekkie since discovering sci fi in jr high.
I’ve smiled watching videos on YouTube.com about Janeway and her
colleague and friend Seven of Nine . . . like one called “Waiting for A Star to Fall”
by Sazzy1972. Be sure to wear your headphones for the full effect . . .
@Also of late, I have found myself
acknowledging how rich my life is in friends . . . and how truly
blessed I am . . . can’t say enough . . . As a survivor, I am rich in
memories of when good friends have kept me going. To them, I say . . .
“I am awed, inspired and grateful!”
@A web search for commentary on friendship turned up much and many . . . Here’s my sampling:
"A friend is one who knows us, but loves us anyway."
- Jerome Cummings
"Only your real friends tell you when your face is dirty."
- Sicilian Proverb
shall I forget the days I spent with you. Continue to be my friend, as
you will always find me yours." - Ludwig van Beethoven
be dismayed at good-byes. A farewell is necessary before you can meet
again. And meeting again, after moments or lifetimes, is certain for those who are friends." - Richard Bach
"A real friend is one who walks in when the rest of the world walks out."
- Walter Winchell
"The better you know someone, the less there is to say.
Or maybe, there's less that needs to be said." - Unknown
"Can miles truly separate us from friends? If we want to be with someone we love, aren't we already there?" - Richard Bach
"A friend is someone who reaches out for your hand...and touches your heart."
"What is a friend? I will tell you . . . it is someone with whom you dare to be yourself." - Frank Crane
it seems to me that the best relationships - the ones that last - are
frequently the ones that are rooted in friendship. You know, one day
you look at the person and you see something more than you did the
night before. Like a switch has been flicked somewhere. And the person
who was just a friend is . . . suddenly the only person you can ever
imagine yourself with."
- Dana Scully (The X-Files)
@ My iPod collection now includes seven different rendentions of "Star to Fall
by Cabin Crew . . . but at least two more versions are available on the
iTunes Music Store comprehensive list . . . Could it be that I have
seven of nine? . . . Who knew?
