My friends make me feel less alone in this world. Not having close family to depend on leaves one feeling like an invisible island sometimes, and sad, so I count my girlfriends as my family. I may spend the latter part of my life as a solitary writer, philospher, teacher, intellectual, and spiritual seeker; so I am learning now how to live in solitude. The hardest part is accepting that my path may be one that I walk alone. It's not a prediction, tedoltion, or failure. It's just a possibility. My friends make the transition easier.
Thank GODDESS for women friends!
