is the start of winning happy repeat visits, I'm finding.
Lately I've had an unusual number of new friends who clearly crave validation for their desires... and for themselves.
Perhaps it's the turbulent times that's manhandling my new friends... and when they come to see me, I understand that words, a smile and a touch can fulfill one very basic need.
My time comes with many small pleasures... and one larger one. Acceptance.
Let's treat each other as if we count. Because we do.
