We love this piece. We really wanted to share it with all of you because it is spot on. We hope you enjoy it.
Old friends see you as you were. New friends see you as you are. I have a handful of old friends who understand how my younger self continues to evolve as they do, bringing us to the present point in our lives.
My friendships spanning four to five decades are precious to me. However, as life changes along with our passions it is essential to make new friends with whom we can relate in the now, with overlapping interests and geographical proximity. My new close friends are culled from common activities I share with them at this stage in my life. I feel lucky to have enough of a network that I never have to be alone, if I so choose.
