Since I’ve been trying to avoid using the term “old”, I guess I should refer to my “VINTAGE” friend from back when we met in college chemistry, in whose home I’m visiting... (and helping her bathe the fleas off her new kitten)
We WERE going to try to go kayaking on her neighborhood lake this afternoon but the forecast of sudden storms and high winds kept us home... (though the storms never materialized, go figure) We made up for it by sitting on the porch sharing insights and stories of our children and grandchildren, enjoying the shade and refreshing breeze, catching up from when we were together last.
There is hardly a pleasure in the world that can compare to being with an old/vintage friend who has known you for a long time and who knows you well, and loves you anyway... no need for pretense or self-importance... no explanation necessary for my idiosyncrasies, just acceptance...
Really a gift from God!
