Click on the link for David’s Facebook page, and this beautiful photograph of entwined trees and profound reflection on the importance of friendship.
We particularly like:-
‘An undercurrent of real friendship is a blessing exactly because its elemental form is rediscovered again and again through understanding and mercy. All friendships of any length are based on a continued, mutual forgiveness. Without tolerance and mercy all friendships die…’
and David’s thoughts on the alchemic power of friendship:-
‘Friendship is the great hidden transmuter of all relationship: it can transform a troubled marriage, make honorable a professional rivalry, make sense of heartbreak and unrequited love and become the newly discovered ground for a mature parent-child relationship.’
