Word Paths • Friendship


Everyone has a word path. One word leads to another.
Word Paths have  been a Friday feature showcasing possibilities in written words, creative process and artistic pieces from the beginning of my blog You can go here, to my first post on this project and see how it all started
One inspiration led to another....I was invited for a coffee last week after dropping off the kids at school. You know me not one to deny myself that cup of joe. While doing the latte thing and enjoying some conversation we came to the topic of friendship. My friend said friendship "should be effortless" and I have always thought the same. We hadn't seen each other in a while except for the occasional window wave when picking up the kids. What was nice was that and we both felt it was so easy pick up where we left off. Along the same lines as "effortless" I said that I liken my best friendships to the same relationship one has with cousins. Time passes and you just pick up where you left off. That is a comfortable place to be in a friendship. 
Thanks Miss E. for the Word Path Inspiration!

So after coffee I went back to the studio and while organizing I found this great small book full of quotes on friendship. It is so funny how things just present themselves in your life like that. This tiny treasure is from Orange Art Miniatures, The lively little letterpress library. They have tiny books on Gardens and Gardening, Cooks on Cooking, Blooming Herbs, Children, Words About Love and on. They make sweet gifts to share.

Here are two of my favorites from this tiny book:

Wherever you are it is your friends who make your world.

I always felt that the great high privilege, relief and comfort of
 friendship was that one had to explain nothing- KATHERINE MANSFIELD

I need to thank my oldest son who helped me with the artwork for today's Word Path. 
Thanks for keeping me organized sweet face!
