Friendship is the spice of life

On The Edge

If music be the food of love, then friendship be the spice of life, says I.

One fantastic way to shake off the day’s troubles is to:

1)   pick a friend
2)   pick a location
3)   pick a time
4)   meet and share
5)   replay steps 1-4 on a weekly basis

A few weeks ago a friend of mine and I initiated the above cycle, to my delight. A bit more than a coffee + chat, we meet expressly to share how we are not just what’s going on. Then, we pray together. Sometimes, I even get a hot tea out of the arrangement.

If you are anything like me, then somehow the 9-5 eats up way more hours than 8 in a day. It’s hard enough keeping crumbs swept, lunches made and evening meetings attended to consider adding another weekly calendar blob, right? Wrong! This one is totally worth it. It has a mysterious ability to add mental space in the brain clutter. When you look at your calendar, what other event can do that?!
