Sally Cronin of SmorgasbordInvitation began a new Saturday morning coffee and chat with authors and writers. Sally is a wonderful writer and a great sharer of the works of others. In each of her coffee invitations, Sally always shares a beautiful story of her own, which ties in with the company she’s having over for coffee and dessert. Today’s writing is about friendship. As part of her invitation to us, she always takes our order, asking what type of coffee and dessert we’d prefer. Anything is fine with me, as long as it’s gluten and dairy-free.
I was elated to be in the company of, not only Sally, but other friends and esteemed writers/authors, Olga Nunez Miret and Teagan Riordain Geneviene Please join us now for Saturday coffee and chat.
“Friendship can sometimes be hard to define as we, as individuals, play different roles in the lives of others. We are daughters, sons, brothers and sisters, mothers and fathers, bosses and employees, husbands and wives, lovers and friends. I was browsing the web looking at opinions on the subject and found this post by Alex Lickerman MD author of the book The Undefeated Mind: On the Science of Constructing an Indestructible Self. http://www.amazon.com/Alex-Lickerman-MD/e/B008UT77MW ”
“Here is an excerpt from the post and you might like to pop over and read the full article as I felt it summed up what I feel about friendship including those that I have developed online with fellow bloggers. https://www.psychologytoday.com/blog/happiness-in-world/201312/the-true-meaning-friendship ”
“The Japanese have a term, kenzoku, which translated literally means “family.” The connotation suggests a bond between people who’ve made a similar commitment and who possibly therefore share a similar destiny. It implies the presence of the deepest connection of friendship, of lives lived as comrades from the distant past. Many of us have people in our lives with whom we feel the bond described by the word kenzoku.”
