Finding community that encourages communicating, building intimacy, and being loving can be quite a challenge, when people are more mobile than ever, super busy, and don’t focus so much on the face-to-face interactions.
But, we still crave it. Long for it.
One day, a store manager and friend at a coffee shop I frequent had new ink on his arm. I had to find out more about this detailed piece.
The three birds represent his husband, him, and their best friend who officiated their wedding.
And the scenery depicts the many hikes the three best friends have climbed together.
Each one has limited contact with their family of origin. But, they have come together to form a family.
They spend time together, talking and doing things as a unit, despite pain, hurt, and losses they’ve experienced.
In terms of my writing, you know, the series I’ve hinted at here and there, the story starts with four best friends in their thirties, two women and two men, who have grown, matured, and weathered life together for over twenty years, in spite of the betrayal, damage, and pain experienced from their past.
That is all I’ll say for now.
What’s your story?
