I Can Fly Higher Than A Seagull

I've just picked up a message from Mary Ann giving me 'Friend' banner, how cool is that! Now I know there are a few cynics out there who bemoan the idea of 'friends' in the land of blogs and on-line community, and I have to say that my experience since I began posting almost a year ago has been the better because of my electronic friends like Mary Ann! Tips, insights, inspiration have all come from getting to know people 'on-line' and all that with the Atlantic ocean in between.

So, getting this banner was really cool and It got me thinking...

My first thought was that Bet Midler song 'Wind Beneath My Wings' but no sooner had I dreamt up a decent headline and found a picture than I remembered "it's eagle dummy". maybe she'll release a new version?

My second thought was about friendship and gullibility and it seems clear to me that a true friend makes gullibility redundant. This is because a true friend never takes advantage of the trust you place in them. Giving over your trust places us all in a position of vulnerability which the unscrupulous can exploit , and we all do this at some time or other in our lives. If we've ever been made to feel stupid then that's OK, because the problem is really with other person, and if they are like that they're probably someone you don't want to spend much time on the planet with anyway. There are plenty of true friends to be found in the world.

Check out some friends of mine:
