Friday Five - Companions on the Way

As we take the beginning steps of our journey through Lent, who would we take as a companion? Name five people, real or imaginary, you might like to have with you as guide or guardian or simply good friend.

I'm going with my first thoughts here.

My dear friend J and my once dear friend S, in opposite corners of the country, for our deep, utterly inexplicable connectedness despite time, difficulties, and distance.

My good friend C, who is a companion in knitting, very thoughtful discussion, and laughter.

My friend T, whom I'm still getting to know; we never seem to have enough time to finish our conversations.

Frederica Mathews-Green, for her thoughtful experience of Orthodoxy, which intrigues and challenges me.

I think it's time to write some letters, make some phone calls, and plan some coffee dates. And pick up FMG's book on my bookshelf, At the Corner of East and Now.

I wish I had a local knitting friend! Sounds like fun.
