My session to the dentist was terrible (i’m not exagerating…or just a bit) have to return on thursday. No comments! I’ve got friends popping in from Paris and Porto which is great has there’s nothing like being with friends chatting for hours, laughing, eating, drinking even dancing and doing it all over again the next day. It fill one’s soul to connect with the ones we love and don’t see as often as we would want. 

  The Prophet
  Khalil Gibran

Speak to us of Friendship
 And he answered, saying:
  Your friend is your needs answered.
   He is your board and your fireside.
For you come to him with your hunger, and you seek him for peace.
  When your friend speaks his mind you fear not the “nay” in your own mind, nor do you withhold the “ay”.
 And when he is silent your heart ceases not to listen to his heart;
 For without words, in friendship, all thoughts, all desires, all expectations 
    are born and shared, with joy that is unacclaimed.
  When you part from your friend, you grieve not;
   For that which you love most in him may be clearer in his absence,
   as the mountain to the climber is clearer from the plain.
  And let there be no purpose in friendship save the deepening of the spirit.
   For love that seeks aught but the disclosure of its own
   mystery is not love but a net cast forth: and only the unprofitable is caught.
    And let best be for your friend.
     If he must know the ebb of your tide, let him know its flood also.
     For what is your friend that you seek him with hours to kill?
        Seek him always with hours to live.
       For it is his to fill your need, but not your emptiness.
      And in the sweetness of friendship let there be laughter, and sharing of pleasures.
      For in the dew of little things the heart finds its morning and is refreshed

it’s one of my favorites author, one that as his place by my bedside
