The Gallery Togetherness


So many choices for this week.  I am being inundated with togetherness from good friends and family at the moment.  But this picture just jumped out at me and asked to be posted.  My best friend from school and me c1990.

Last week she read a poem at my Mum's funeral.  We both read at each other's weddings.  We've been friends since the start of secondary school where we fell in love with drama together. You can see our love of performing in this picture I think.  We both went on to become drama teachers. 

It struck me at mum's funeral that she's someone who has witnessed and been there for the major rites of passage of my life, and ceremony and rituals mean a lot to us dramatists.   We're not on each other's doorsteps so we dip in and out, but we are always going to be a big presence in each other's lives.

For more togetherness, visit Tara's lovely Gallery.

Lovely post,I have a friend like that and it makes me so sad that we are in different countries now - there are a few downsides of living abroad! Glad you have such a good friend, especially at the moment.

Love the photo and such lovely words. Those are true friendships, you may not always see each other but you are there when you need each other.

Well written! I know exactly what you mean. My best friend is just like that. We are not together every minute anymore, but she was the first by my side at three am, when Hannah was diagnosed. Ah, now I'm all teary.
You do look super cute in the hat! Love the attitude. :-)
