We spent the new year with dear friends. It was the best way to begin 2017. I've been thinking recently about how important friends, family, being 'part of' is for the human spirit. When I spend time with friends, I'm truly present. Exchanging ideas, talking about the things you love, sharing new music you've found with one another is just so much fun. Most, if not all, things are better with friends: drinking wine at sunset by the sea, listening to music, dancing, eating, walking, shopping, roadtrips, vacations, breathing, life in general. We all need a tribe. We all need to be accepted and to feel like we belong. We all need a group of people who truly know us and love us. Time with friends is this week's simple pleasure and one that should be enjoyed as often as possible. Happy Weekend.
