Friendship, IV

on 2014/03/15

Words cannot tell
How deeply I’m under the spell
Of your love and friendship, and how we gel
Together, we’re items that sell!

My last installment of Friendship focuses on Friendships that are with people from the U.S of A and abroad. Starting with my last year of High School, going on to Berkshire Community College and Bridgewater State University, and beyond I have been very fortunate in expanding my friends circle by befriending people from everywhere!

My knowledge of the world expanded too as a result, so that I am more aware of my surroundings. I now love any and all societal tidbits, and I realize that we aren’t so different! As people, we are all rigid as well as flexible, and insecure to confident. Whether it’s struggling to remember “a very odd” name of a Jordanian friend to being able to openly share things with an American stranger to completely trusting Canadian strangers– I have had those opportunities to step out of my comfort zone!

Everything, including art, is a testament to the greatness of being together like what I saw at an Eastern European “Ethnic Festival” where traditional and modern artwork were being sold. Having been at many craft fairs, I have seen the vibrancy of each cultural item that is sold, from handmade Guatemalan Worry Dolls to African Drums. Music in fact is the other art where everyone is connected, and now moreso through social media like Facebook and Twitter, the fan and the musician have been connected even more. (at the mercy of a fan, the artist can also either thank social media or not!) Through this fan-artist partnership, one can also see which artist has been eaten up by stardom, and those that have a heart of gold. I am very happy to say that my favorite musicians of the past are still active, with one having their own radio show and inspiring us all by it! They have provided useful guides for bettering our lives–and as another result, more friends from here and afar for me!

My life has truly been blessed with all of the friendships I have made, and will continue to make! I continually wish these special people the best in life, and for those that are on a different continent– I hope to see you soon!

Life is too short, so why stint when interacting with others after all!!??
