Make New Friends…

As a young child I remember singing the song at summer camp, "Make new friends but keep the old, one is silver and the other is gold." It wasn't until I became an adult that I really began to understand the meaning of those words. I am truly blessed with incredible friendships and have recently found a "new friend." Her name is Kay Reardon and she lives just down the road from me. It's funny that I had to travel downtown to meet someone so close to home. We met at cyber fyber, an art exhibition launched by Columbia artist Susan Lenz at Gallery 80808 in Vista Studios in Columbia. We share many interests, art, of course is one of them. But, I've realized that it is not just the love of art that brings us together but simply the ability to give and to receive love. Kay is a "new friend" but one that I believe will be an "old one" very soon.
