About blogging friendships

Stolen from a commenter on another site:

Oh the comfort,
the inexpressible comfort of feeling safe with a person,
having neither to weigh thoughts nor measure words,
but pouring them all right out, just as they are
chaff and grain together
certain that a faithful hand will take and sift them,
keep what is worth keeping,
and with the breath of kindness
blow the rest away.

Last year I made an 11x14 poster (Christmas present for my best friend) using this quote.

That is truly a beautiful piece. Definitely worthy of being made into a poster or a sampler (embroidered or needlepoint).

I may be a BAD friend, but I've been so busy listening to the same song for three days straight (some may think I'm kidding - it's MUSICAL wallowing), sometimes weeping, and debating about how many tranquilizers really are appropriate.

That verse made me cry and miss you,
