Friends


Why is it,” he said, one time, at the subway entrance, “I feel I’ve known you so many years?”
“Because I like you,” she said, “and I don’t want anything from you
.”
~ Ray Bradbury, Fahrenheit 451

We cannot tell the precise moment when friendship is formed. As in filling a vessel drop by drop, there is at last a drop which makes it run over; so in a series of kindnesses there is at last one which makes the heart run over.”
~ Ray Bradbury, Fahrenheit 451

The "torreon" (the tower) of my childhood

The “torreon” (the tower) of my childhood

Cordoba, Argentina. 1974.

He was probably nine, she was eight.

Endless hikes: hills and rivers, the sun shining. Hand in hand, all smiles.

She danced like a queen. He was handsome, funny, warm.

The kiss never happened. But it was forever.

What do you fear, lady?” [Aragorn] asked.
“A cage,” [Éowyn] said. “To stay behind bars, until use and old age accept them, and all chance of doing great deeds is gone beyond recall or desire
.”
~ J.R.R. Tolkien, The Return of the King

The bus. Tears. Torn heart.

A friendship is forever.

Friendship is the purest love. It is the highest form of Love where nothing is asked for, no condition, where one simply enjoys giving.”
~ Osho

About Silvia TIC

Welcome to these exercises inside the dimensions of what we are: we are what we dream and think and feel, but we are also the different characters we perform, not just the roles (mother, wife, friend), but those things we call “occupations” or “earning a life”. More than anything, we are part of a giant ecosystem and all what we do connects and impacts others (people, animals, plants, air, water...)
