On Love & Friendship

Whenever I dwell on the themes of love and friendship, some concepts emerge: Reciprocity, for true friendship is always a two-way street of give-and-take, chemistry, for good friendships are nothing without the X factor of connecting and identification on some deeper level, and a sense of comfort—by way of gladness—and of hope which, through friendship, seasons our days.
