nicholas and blog or not to blog

This entry has nothing to do with interiors or architecture, but everything to do with friendship.
As spelt out in one of his daily entries (featured below) in a 365 day 'online' photographic account, Nicholas (old friend) and I meet again after the longest time. Wanting to feature this on our blog speaks of the value I place on friendships and how, after not seeing someone for 12 years and finding a certain familiar ease with that person is one of the 'great' things (not to mention the cutest shot of our puppy Oskar). Thanks Steven

"Day 176 of 365.Great night last night. Caught up with and old friend that I hadn't seen for more than a dozen years or so. Lots of laughs. Lots and lots of excellent white wine, predominantly from NZ. Met loved ones and partners and puppies and friends of friends too. And laughed and drank some more. And realigned philosophies and compared life's highs and lows and nicks and knocks. Remembered when. And how and who. But never too much to bore everyone else. Because there were new connections there as well. Old friends connected us to new. Circles were completed. Passions revealed. And over pizza and more wine, old friendships were resealed."
