we knew each other in high school.
parted ways. and then years later, he
visited with a mutual friend. a bit after
that visit, he started rethinking life and needed
a friend to bounce ideas and thoughts off of.
email was quite handy.
and that's when we finally began to know each other.
it's been maybe 15 years now that we've been back
in each other's lives. he's like a brother to me.
we've seen each other thru some rough times, and
we've saved each other more than once from drowning
in life's craze.
the emails are less frequent now. but still a major
part of our friendship. especially their freakish
nature. they show up at the right times, say things
that hit so close that you wonder how it could happen
and keep us mystified as how it could keep happening
like that over and over.
this morning he sent me a note for my chain of love.
(see post a few down).
he included a quote......from mother teresa.....
'i have found the paradox, that if you love until it
hurts, there can be no more hurt, only more love.'
tears sprang to my eyes the second i read it.
i had NO idea how to love. i feel like i'm in kindergarten.
i keep tryin'. i keep messin' up.
and i keep gettin' cosmic messages to keep on goin'...
how perfect to get this one from my cosmic brother.
