I am so grateful today for my wonderful friends. I have been blessed to make dear, dear friends in my travels. Not acquaintances that I check in with now and again via social media, but true and lifelong familiars - from Latin familiaris: "of the same household". We have disparate backgrounds, cultures, upbringings, vocations, religions, morals...and yet, we are kindred first by circumstance, then choice. You, my Dears, are My Beloved Tribe. And I am grateful for you!
