its a rare thing to find – organic friendship. the kind of friendship that grows from a mere hello. a friendship that is deep and meaningful, mutually invested in and mutually reciprocated. yes, real honest friendship is hard to come by.
which is why i am ever so lucky for having met the viking, HS. i know she knows how much i adore her – i tell her so every day. but i really don’t think she knows the impact she has had on me in such a short, significant period of time. in realizing that in three weeks she starts making her way home i am sadden by the thought that my days will not be filled with her companionship, her laughter. but it is comforting to know that moving forward, i have a friend in her that i feel as though has been there my entire life.
its only been five months since we lost ourselves for six hours in a coffee shop but her friendship have become absolutely invaluable. it is fair to say that she saved me. saved me from collapsing into a rut of loneliness, confusion and disparity. honest from our first conversation she made me aware of what i deserve and challenged me to go make things – positive things – happen. she was the friend that i have been longing for since arriving here. fundamentally, when i met her i truly started living here. and her boyfriend is a winner too. their chemistry, their connection – now that is love.
it’s a lot to say about someone but how can you possibly sing enough praise about someone who sees a stranger, asks how they are and then spends the time making sure they get to where they are going – making sure they are okay? well really, i cannot sing about her loud enough.
yep, i’m going to miss the viking. and the englishman too.
