January 22: I have a lot of really good friends. Some go back 30 years or more. Some I haven’t even spoken to face-to-face in years. Facebook is a hub for a lot of us. But some it’s enough to know they’re out in the world. I sometimes wonder if some of these friends, especially the ones I’ve known for so long, the ones who might not even like me if we met today, even know how often they are on my mind. I wonder if they know how much I value their acceptance over all the changes in our lives — hell, our very personalities. The fact that I know I can count on so many people — count on them when I need them, count on them when I don’t — just kind of caught me wonderstruck-like today. I told a few friends I was thinking about them via FB and voicemail. But, really, the beauty of these gracious folks, is that I know I don’t need to.
