"Without wearing any mask we are conscious of, we have a special face for each friend."
Oliver Wendell Holmes
For the friend who is in pain, I want to be strong and soft. Caring and warm.
For the happy friend, I want to be happy too, share the laughter, enjoy the company.
For the friend who's nervous, I want to be stable and calm. Be the hand on the shoulder he needs to put himself together.
For my dreamer friends, I want to be the one that listens very carefully, letting their dreams grow roots.
I know they do the same for me.
When I look in the mirror, I don't see masks. It's just all parts of me.
No special faces. Just many, many expressions of the same face.
