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!
