William Shakespeare is so correct when he said that “A friend is one that knows you as you are, understands where you have been, accepts what you have become, and still, gently allows you to grow”.
The beauty about friendships is that we cannot tell the exact circumstance and that it ensued and best formed before we needed it. I am super glad to have been privileged to develop super friendships in these manner.
One long-time, unpretentious and authentic friendship I obtained is that with Karen B. And after eons of seasons, I have been favored by luck and providence to catch up with this genuine and indisputable human being.
My friendship with Karen B is actually older than a lot of readers and followers of this blog. And for the last more than 3 decades that we know each other catching up has been very intermittent. Catch up can sometimes be between seasons, sometimes annually and sometimes even lengthier than the sports Olympic meets of the planet.
But despite the irregular meet-ups the level of frankness, candidness and sincerity remains the same. May it be silly, serious, brutal, momentous or wicked, I can essentially say anything I want to this lady. And point in fact, she can actually do the same to me! That is how deep the friendship I have with Karen B. And I am just so glad to have met up again with this lady.
