Terry on Friendship…

Terry Hamblin writes in a comment:

I have never been good at making friends. I am close to my wife and children, but otherwise I have acquaintances; close enough to share a joke with or spend an evening with now and then if chance should bring us together, but not close enough to seek them out. I am as close to my correspondents on the net as I am to most other people.

As a child I had two close friends, one became a violinist with a London symphony orchestra, the other a tax inspector. I haven’t seen them since I left school. At University I shared a room with a couple of guys, but we parted never to see each other again.

Work has brought me fairly close to several colleagues and there are several church members we occasionally see, but no-one who sticks closer than a brother.

I’ll drink to that, Terry.
