I'm taking a break after a discussion with a friend, and it just occurred to me how fortunate I am.
I want to thank for the fact that I have friends (like her) who share a great deal of background, interest, concerns, and values -- yes, you heard it, all of them -- in both intelligently and emotionally stimulating ways.
These are friends who I don't want to lose in any event. You know who you are. You are the sexiest of all. I'd like to thank all of you, in the sincerest way possible.
