The 31-Day Blog Challenge, Day Twenty-Seven: The Welcome Will Not End

Today’s writing prompt:

31 DAY BLOG CHALLENGE, DAY 27: “what makes me feel better, always”:


At the end of a long day…

At the end of a stupid day…

After I’ve marinated in mind-numbing or terrifying political talk and need reassurance that it’s not the entire world that’s descending into madness…

If I can have a conversation with a good friend – in person, by phone, by Skype (did that one time ever), via Facebook status comment thread … however I do it …

That makes the light at the end of the tunnel … not be an oncoming train anymore.


Sometime late in my high school career, I happened upon this couplet, from Abraham Cowley’s Of Myself. It resonated with me then, and it certainly still does (such that it made it into my Favorite Quotes list a couple of weeks ago):


Acquaintance I would have, but when’t depends / Not on the number but the choice of friends.
