Beach Walk 475 – Radical Friendship

Friendship has implied meanings, and it’s not easy to step out of the normal expectations.

I recently had a chance to learn that allowing people to have their private times can actually enrich the relationship. It’s easy to make up stories in the absence of information, but I strongly recommend against it.

I could have worked up many scenarios during my friend’s recent “timeout” and made a judgment about what her timeout meant. I would have been wrong. And that would have left me ill-prepared for the day she emailed and said she wanted to hang out together again. Radical friendship can mean leaving someone you love completely alone and trusting her to work things out.

That’s my nephew Jordan in today’s episode. He’s a great boogie boarder!
