“If the day and night are such that you greet them with joy, and life emits a fragrance like flowers and sweet smelling herbs – that is your success. All nature is your congratulations”
– Henry David Thoreau -

I have been trying to define the term friendship and it became more complicated then expected. Espen came up with someone you enjoy spending time with, I find it a little restrictive and according to Aristotle and myself it is impossible to apply one definition. Complexity is the matter of friendship, not one of them is the same, special rules apply and circumstances. Then time, time is money nowadays, time is also an invention, time is what we lack, time is something I have issues splitting into useful slots, it shifts and disappears . So to have great relationships you should spend the time working on them, but then why not use that time for yourself instead.....Just been a little thoughtful lately, mirroring the weather and the battle within myself to change within...
And for those of you in the mood this week-end simply try this test on friendship to assess your ideas about friendship and compares them with those of the great philosophers of friendship.
