|Pecan pie -- a delicious and lovely lunchtime treat|
Today I had lunch with someone I've been friends with for 15 years. We talked about our families, books we were reading, health and politics. Yes, politics. We don't have the same ideas about what irks us, what we're concerned about for the future, nor how we believe some issues should be resolved. But we talked. And listened. And considered.
I think we're lucky.
I wish everyone could have the same experience, that everyone has people in their lives who make it possible to have a healthy exchange of ideas without vilification or name-calling. This lunch was a treat for its company and conversation.... plus the scrumptious dessert.
