Peace

Peace is meeting an old friend, one who has angered you and who you have angered. Peace is accepting you have been wrong and they have been wrong too. Peace is that familiarity that is the foundation of love. Peace is the happiness you feel because you are in the same room as them, same life on planet Earth. Peace is the hug and the smile and the silent look that says I'm glad you are part of my life. Peace is accepting that although you may never see them again, there is a bond. Peace is the happiness you feel because no matter how far away they are, you know they are happy.

Beautiful, and very topical for me. Life really is too short.

Wonderful - and I completely agree.

Yes. Exactly.

Thanks guys.

So wrong that we can't spend more time with the few people we love, but it's pretty brilliant that we encounter them at all.

Feeling a bit sad right now. Looking forward to stuff settling.

Cynicism and bitchiness coming up soon...
