....Maurie Stein, his best friend, was going deaf. Koppel imagined the tow men together one day, one unable to speak, the other unable to hear.What would that be like?
We will hold hands", Morrie said."And there'll be a lot of love passing between us.Ted, we've had thirty-five years of friendship.You don't need speech or hearing to feel that".
from "Tuesdays with Morrie" for Mitch Albom, 1997- an old man, a young man and life's greatest lesson
After 35 years of true frienship, you dont really need words to communicate. it goes without saying. no more words needed, no more explaining or telling. it was all said and a solid ground has been established. building has already been in process for years.
I am blessed with friends, who I know since KG (one), Bernd, from my last position (8) newly came this year (4) and others yet to come- hopefully.
I can not iamgine my life without those who are existing now, who i know since so many years, who have been part of my life for long years, and who have shared with me lots of happy and sad moments.
They all care for me, as much as I care for them. it is never 1 to 1 act, or 1 to 1 compliment. neither of us never cared who called who last time, or whose turn is it to plan our outings, or drive me back to a familiar road.
Nor do I know who told who about Dad's death, i simply found them all around. or have followed, or came later on.
as simple, deep and clear as that.
True friends are a blessing.
