There is such beauty in friendship built over cats, and puppies, and birthday memories, and Austin Powers and The Craft, and of course:
words which created so many worlds, words threaded through time, connecting childhood to memory to a future where I hope
we’ll continue to know each other, and here we are now
in a strange present (maybe this is a strange present!), a city we’re growing into, a life we’re learning all about, and so many new memories to make, paths to pave, and I just wonder what is in store for us, and what we have in store for the world!
I want to thank you for so many solid memories, and I cannot wait to make more! More tea! More books! More worlds of words! More, just more.
Few friendships move from childhood to adulthood as easily as ours did – and it’s a well earned luxury, a well earned tranquility: I know I will always be at home in a conversation with you.
This birthday, I wish you peaceful reflection on 25 years lived, and so much happiness for your path to the future.
