"A real friend is one who walks in when the rest of the world walks out."

Wow..that is a pretty big quote.
What I am finding out about California and moving when I am over 40 is that I have left all of my friends behind for my family. There will never be better friends than I have already had for the last 30 years in Michigan. I have worn my heart on my sleeve my whole life and it is callused and bruised but I have band aids and thread to stitch up the deep cuts and have developed moving on techniques and learned not to look back. I care about people...that's how I roll. I guess "it is what it is". I believe we get one time in this world to make a difference and show feelings and have fun and do good things for people. I do my best to share my musical talent and share my sense of humor and I live for good conversation with people I don't know as well as those I do know. Maybe I am too busy doing my best to be a father...maybe I am too busy at life to really apply myself 100% to friendship and maybe I shouldn't worry about people so much and maybe I shouldn't care so much if my friends are safe and OK.
I consider myself to not judge people for anything...I really try to just roll on and make a difference in this world. I might share feelings with a stranger expecting an opinion or maybe a different viewpoint and maybe I expect them to do the same with me...I like the way people look at things differently and I enjoy talking that in as an advantage in life and issues.
That's my take on friendship..and I miss my friends I have lost.
