I was talking to some people who are very close to me today. I only have a few people who I call friends and probably a handful that are acquaintances. Not that I want it that way, it just is. I would like to have many more. I try to help my friends even if they don’t listen, and many of them help me. I listen however even if I don’t like what is said. In most cases I follow their advice. Most think I am too young to know what I am talking about. Considering my life experiences they are probably right, but there are things I do know, that others do not.


Writing a chapter of Legacy Grapes of Rome, I wrote something pretty profound. After talking to my friends today I began making corrections to Foundation Grapes of Rome that I have worked on since January. I do not write slosh books so my books take months to years to write and edit until I am almost happy. Back to my point. I thought of those friends and what I said in Legacy Grapes of Rome, and today I put the same thing in Foundation Grapes of Rome, because my friends reminded me of what friendship is all about.

Many of you read my books, my stories and my web site. That is great, I love it, you know what I would love more? Your friendship. Talk to me, let us become friends!

4 Thoughts on “Friends are important

  1. Friends are extremely important. In my life I have probably had less than a half dozen that I consider to be really good friends, the type you would do anything for and likewise they would do anything for you. Then I have good friends that probably number less than 20. The rest of my friends , what I would consider casual friends, are people I have been friends with for many years or co-workers that I have worked with for years.

    Some people don’t understand the concept of real friends and as such they have none. With true friends you don’t keep score.

    Friends are important and true friends are the ones who stick with you no matter what happens. Sometimes, however, it takes something nasty to happen to realise those who you thought were good friends turn out to be nothing of the sort and you are better off without them.

      So true Paul as we know that happened with me when I got sick, but we always need that hope that things can be better and friends are just around the corner. You will always be my BFF never worry about that.

    I know it’s a matter of perspective, I am surrounded by people every day so I know I can sometimes take human interaction for granted. It’s a lot tougher when you are isolated from people so I do take your advice to try to find the adventure in every day. Some days it’s harder to find it, but I always look for it.

    But because of my every day experiences, I tend to be quiet and a bit of a loner in my “off time”, so I am content with a small circle of good friends… very small. Paul is right, friends ARE important, but good friends are ESSENTIAL.
