1) A friend knows. Knows me. Knows changes. Knows time. And cares. And I know that he knows and cares.
2) Friends grow old in the right way. For the right purpose. Like something you drink that warms you for a long time after. That’s worth ageing.
3) There are exceptions, but the rule is probably that it is dangerous to confuse colleagues and friends.… Read more
This is the first list-post of mine, although I had sworn I’d rather die than ever make one. But I thought it would be a service to future readers who are looking for more direct advice from my experiences – how to use them to help themselves. So here goes!
