all-weather friendships weather all storms. whether rain, snow, or sunshine, when you have a crew of peeps around, nothing is ill at ease with the world. nothing seems dire or inconsequential.

it's a powerful and intoxicating way to experience the infinite. camaraderie, lounging, laughter, being silly, tapping into conversational exploration and free-form improvisation, intermittent dancing, and allowing each other free reign to express themselves.

when you find the shortcuts to a form of true happiness, why would you ever choose to walk the paths. amazing times, amazing doorways through the spring to the summer. i'm very much looking forward to it all.
