Why is it,” he said, one time, at the subway entrance, “I feel I’ve known you so many years?”
“Because I like you,” she said, “and I don’t want anything from you
~ Ray Bradbury, Fahrenheit 451

We cannot tell the precise moment when friendship is formed. As in filling a vessel drop by drop, there is at last a drop which makes it run over; so in a series of kindnesses there is at last one which makes the heart run over.”
~ Ray Bradbury, Fahrenheit 451

The "torreon" (the tower) of my childhood
The “torreon” (the tower) of my childhood

Cordoba, Argentina. 1974.

He was probably nine, she was eight.

Endless hikes: hills and rivers, the sun shining. Hand in hand, all smiles.

She danced like a queen. He was handsome, funny, warm.

The kiss never happened. But it was forever.

What do you fear, lady?” [Aragorn] asked.
“A cage,” [Éowyn] said. “To stay behind bars, until use and old age accept them, and all chance of doing great deeds is gone beyond recall or desire
~ J.R.R. Tolkien, The Return of the King

The bus. Tears. Torn heart.

A friendship is forever.

Friendship is the purest love. It is the highest form of Love where nothing is asked for, no condition, where one simply enjoys giving.”
~ Osho
