When time comes calling
A friend is very ill. We used to be close, but drifted apart, as friends sometimes do. When I heard the news, I sent her a message. That I was thinking of her; that she didn’t have to reply if her social capacity was on overload.
She just received more bad news, which she’s accepted with more grace and good humour than I could ever manage. She thanked me for writing.
“I hope you are well and happyâ€”and creatively engaged.”
