Today I am very excited, apart from the fact that I’m almost done with the darn “Taxes”, myself and 5 of my very close girlfriends are going to have a “girly” night in Brisbane, watching the Broadway play “Fame”!!  (How many of you remember how famous the movie was years ago?) We’ve assigned our designated driver, will go for dinner before it starts and looking forward to having a great time.  There is nothing that can compare to spending quality time with your girlfriends, where we can laugh, giggle and just be crazy!!  We’re all going to dress up in our really cute ensembles and high heels.  The fantastic thing about relationships between girlfriends are that there are no sharp lines or rigid rules. Our level of commitment is true, we all have busy lives but, without a doubt, we’ll be there for another, in good or bad times.  Sometimes we get caught up in the stream of life, and don’t make enough time …..The only way to attain and maintain this “balance” is through understanding, patience, and love for each other.   To me our friendship is like a bank account, you cannot continue to draw on it without making a deposit!  I am a big believer that you have to nourish any relationship, and am still very much a part of my friends’ lives as they are very much a part of my life.  Nothing will ever change and for that I am very thankful.

Among Life’s precious jewels, 
Genuine and rare, 
The one that we call friendship 
Has worth beyond compare.


Oh, my god! What have I done?
I laid the trap, and the trap is sprung!
Little menace I abhor…
Now lies dead on pantry floor.
I’m sad and sorry for you, tiny mouse
But you should’ve stayed…

  12. Missed your wonderful prose, poetry and pictures – another amazingly beautiful post!

  13. What makes poetry so wonderful is the fact that it involves all of life, every concern, every desire, and every feeling. If something has some great significance to a person’s existence, then it has a great significance in poetry as well.
