  • Somehow fellow travelers just align. The focus is the thing... seeing out of such similar sorts of eyes.

    There is no ceiling or gap. There is no name for the members other than we.

    You and I become the batter or the skier or the monster as we watch and respond.

    There can be no nobler kind of friendship than one spent often together in mutual focus. I will miss my grandson when I go.
    He is one person who will thoroughly miss me. But we have such a substantial history though he is only 9! Nothing could be better.
