“These friends of mine live their lives, spend their time hoping to find, who they are how they’re made; thought maybe they’d help to find the way…”

“And when the show is over, how I hope that they discover the joy that they bring, and I hope they remember this bond we have together and how they love to sing; they sure love to sing…”

(Tribute to my friends who make the world beautiful with their words. “These Friends of Mine” lyrics by Rosie Thomas)
