I have very good friends.

They may not come from places I expect... but they sure are there.

A few days ago, I woke up. And instead of rushing to the bathroom, I just sort of meditated. And I meditated on love. Love from God, love towards God, love to friends, neutral people, and to people I don't like. It was very nice... I don't know why I don't do that more often. Actually, I know: because most mornings, when I wake up, I don't want to spend time meditating. Or being nice. Or there's a meeting in Round Rock that I've to quickly get to.

Tonight I cooked ground lamb, garlic, eggplant and onions for neighbour night. It's really awesome to have neighbours at walking distance. This time, we played carcasonne.

I am cursed in my love life, but blessed in my friends. They are the most amazing people, and I love them all dearly. :)

What a coincidence ! I've got excellent friends too!

A pity quite a few of them are far enough away that I'll probably only get to meet them a handful of times, in some cases probably not at all. (it's non-trivial to actually get a face-to-face chat with a muslim girl living in Dubai when you're a norwegian boy, for example, despite friendship.)

You, on the other hand, should come over visit Norway at some point *before* children makes that a lot more impractical. (I have no clue if you wish to have them, but if you do, it'll take 20 years for you to regain the same freedom of travel that you enjoy now)

I am positive you have no idea just *how* appreciated you are. I like that you are open and honest. And that you can take disagreement without thinking it's personal. And that you're a nerd. Coming from me, that's a compliment.
