Two things in this post:
Blogger Sally Cronin is a great friend to independent authors around the world, helping us launch and promote our books through her site. Now, Sally has just launched her own book, Tales from the Irish Garden. If you read her first magical garden “Tales”, you know you’re in for a treat.
Congrats to Sally and illustrator Donata Zawadska!
I call it “The Friend Ship”.
What would we do without friends?
On life’s journey, we both welcome and release friends. How to do it with grace is the challenge many of us face.
People change. As we travel toward new horizons and as we ourselves grow, we may lose some of our friends. And whether we are the ones saying goodbye, or we’re the ones being left, it can be a wrenching loss.
Carol Hand shares a wise and reassuring perspective on the changing nature of friends and friendship through this short poem, below. Thank you, Carol.
