Have you ever had friends so awesome they come to your rescue and invite you out for frosties too? I do and here's why my Queen Bee and Bird man are the most amazing people you could ever find. Queenie is someone who takes charges of any situation, you know that when she walks in you better listen up, but this isn't based on hubris or arrogance, she just knows what she's doing and isn't afraid to be who she is (Freaking Awesome!) she's someone who is a fierce friend and even though we lost touch for a long time (my fault) when we found each other again it's like we'd never missed a day, she's always been there through thick and thin and she's someone who has taught me the true meaning of friendship, being someone who will come through when it matters most, she's tried her damndest to make me a neater, more fashionable person as well unfortunately those lessons are being much more slowly absorbed but I have a feeling she's not giving up any time soon.
The Bird man I have know not quite as long, but he just keeps revealing himself to be a cooler and cooler person. He just has what I like to call the likability factor, there's just too many good traits to list, but I'll try, funny, intuitive, sassy, caring and my personal favorite witty and sarcastic. What's more, he's young, talented and has the world at his feet and has no idea! When I was younger (I'm not that old) I worried about what the future would hold, that I would not reach my goals on the dates I had set for their completion, but low and behold those days have come and gone and some things did not get done, but the world kept turning and disaster was not emanate, in fact I think I have learned more from my failures, flops and fu** ups than I ever could have from my success stories.
Someone once said "The art of writing lies in the application of the ass to the seat." It's hilarious how people in this field continuously yearn to write, it's literally bursting to get out of them, but we stop ourselves in the fear that what we create will not be enough, it will be lacking. We dream so big, that we fear we'll never get there. There is one thing I have learned about writing, when you write for yourself, when you make it an extension of your most precious thoughts, your deepest desires and your darkest fears people stand with you and you suddenly realize how connected we all are, you realize that the big dream you longed for has slowly taken shape around you, quietly, unobtrusively steady and one day you look up and you've done it, Golly Gee Wilikers Bird man, you'll do it, I know you will.
