I first want to tell you, this Weekly Photo Friendship Challenge has me reeling out-of-control! Do I want to write about boy-girl platonic friendships? Maybe share a haiku poem . . .
A lifetime shared between them
Mind and soul are One
“Perhaps more than any other relationship, friendships between men and women are alive with ambiguity, contradiction, energy, paradox.” ~Celia Allison Hahn
It is a photo challenge after all so, no, I change my mind.
How about animal friendships like an unlikely pair, the cat and dog.
Oh, and what about childhood friendships? Thanks to the fabulous Facebook and other social media, we can now have friends from the turn of the century tumbling back into our lives and as you stare at the profile pictures, you can mumble under your breath, erm, exactly who were you way back when and how are we connected??
Facebook user: “What?? You say we went to prom together?
Oh, hehe, I see. You look so . . . uh,
differentgreat I almost didn’t recognize you!!”
The worse type of friendships gone bad, of course, are NOT the ones where we fail to identify our friends after so many years of separation, but the ones that end in deep heartache despite how hard you try to keep the pain down to a bare minimum.
“If at first you don’t succeed, try, try again. Then QUIT. There’s no point in being a damn fool about it.” ~W.C. Fields
Divorce is never easy–on anyone and especially on wounded hearts– but with a little reflection, and lots of quality time, some friendships can be restored and if not, the least we can do is send a wish for the other person to have all the best and for ourselves, move on to bigger and better things– like writing rambling thoughts about various forms of friendships on your blog page!
So, what about you? You got some random thought(s) on friendships floating around waiting to be heard?
