A Tribute to Friendship

This gorgeous New England estate was, until recently, the home of friends. Loved and close friends.
For a fellow-man like me, difficult to swallow - then lonely most of the time - this long time friendship (is turning 39 years old this January) is a milestone. And it has been lived and shared over the time in the three of the five continents of the Earth. Their two lovely and intelligent daughters became my friends too.

In 1970, I got a small book from this friend: “You’re my friend so I brought you this book”, edited and introduced by John Marvin.

Excerpts from this book – my favorites – are my way to celebrate friendship. This friendship and true friendship among people, no matter of what kind…

Enjoy and share with your friends…
