Had my French friends for supper last night- we all live in the same area- more or less- and have known each other for many years. We are so comfortable in each other's company that many a long- held secret is revealed. The interesting thing of course, is the journey that each of us in on; we all suffer in our own way (as is the fate of the thinking human being) but we're still here. It's at times like this that one realises that indeed, we are no better or worse than anyone else.
The other thing we do very well together is laugh a lot at ourselves.
