Is there anything in our lives quite like a friend we’ve know for many years? Someone who is witness to the long view of our lives and knows us like few do? How even if there has not been contact for a good while, the conversation picks right up as if there has been no time between. Or how you know that sharing a major life change will be genuinely received with interest and most of all with perspective. True wealth.Got to celebrate my dear friend Sandy’s 70th birthday with his son Zander on a walk out to Tomales Point. We wandered for hours through oceans of flowers, herds of elk and conversations that make a real difference.
