His words resonated for me especially in light of having shared of myself here on this blog and having you, now my dear friends, be a witness to it.
With some of you, a personal connection between us has begun where I hope to be able to be a witness for you in return. In many ways I feel that I have found my people and I am so grateful.
"The ultimate touchstone of friendship is not improvement, neither of the other nor of the self: the ultimate touchstone is witness, the privilege of having been seen by someone and the equal privilege of being granted the sight of the essence of another, to have walked with them and to have believed in them, and sometimes just to have accompanied them for however brief a span, on a journey impossible to accomplish alone."
