Missing Friends

An empty can be quite beautiful or quite daunting. There are nights when the words flow like milk and honey and my fingers can not move fast enough.....and then there are times when the words are hiding, refusing to come, no matter how much coaxing. It is not that I don't have thoughts tonight, but they are of the jet plane variety......they are flying through my brain so quickly I cannot slow them down.

I have thought of friends far away today......and I miss them. Yes, there is e-mail, and phone calls and even Face Book, but it's just not the a face to face, let's have a cup of coffee and spend the afternoon together kind of time. I want to share a meal, hug and sit for hours and laugh.
With a couple of them, there would be some music involved there might even be a new song or two written.

I have friends in the yoga community that I get to see maybe once a year......I miss being in class with them, their encouraging words and amazing wisdom.

Maybe that is why friendships are so special......time is limited and fleeting. You meet, you connect, and then life takes you down a different path. So, everything remains new and fresh, and when the fates do smile and you get to see each other again, you pick up where you left off.

But then there are the friendships, that are always near, those that are built on day to day
living, the good and the bad. When you think about friendships, there is an intricate tapestry
that is woven.......of old and new, giving richness and depth to life.

The empty page tonight became a wistful lament on missing friends......I had no clue when I sat down where my fingers would travel. Now I am rather sad, as I have thought of friends that I would love to see.
Good night, Sweet dreams.


  1. I also have friends like that. I remember afternoons sharing food, bible study and just being together. Now we are states apart and i miss them.

  2. There you go, writers block to a moving blog. Nice one.

  3. I really understand this Jilda. When we moved here from Chicago over twenty years ago, I left behind many of my childhood friends.
    I've only really kept in touch with one of them since the third grade. I do have friends here but it's just not the same as one's that you have shared so much with.
    The good news is that there are people out there that would make wonderful friends, we just have to keep trying to find them!
    Love Di ♥

  4. "...sharing a mean, a hug, a laugh..."

    Whew! I am right there with you. Hope you get to enjoy a good visit soon.
    God bless you - Marsha

  5. Nothing beats a good cup of coffee with friends. But then friends are always there in our hearts, that is why it skips to a different beat every now and then :)
