At the end of winning a rat race, we are still a rat.

friendship-john walker.....

with the falling of leaves ,
the masks of green are stripped off the hillsides;
revealing the uniqueness and diversity of each ridge and valley;
rock and stream , hitherto unseen......
It is in the winter,
when the hills bare their innermost selves ,
we can look at the hills as old friends,
few others can understand....

So it is, with people;
Most of the time we wear our masks.
But during the difficult times, during the winters of our lives;
we shed our facades and reveal all the intricacies of the unique beings we are.

It is in such moments that friendships are formed and people experience each other as few others ever will in such spaces.

to me, friendship is the most beautiful of concepts in relationships.....fundamental to the whole aspect of relating...... unconditional and accepting....
