“Find yourself friends who will be anchors.”

Through with December; here’s the last one from December 3, 2017! Eldest Sis, on friendship: “Find yourself friends who will be anchors. I don’t mean that you always have to stick by each other; what I mean is friends who will ground you – through the years, and times.” — [Photo of my Miri faves] … More “Find yourself friends who will be anchors.”

“I think a man does what he can, until his destiny is revealed.”

Another woeful piece written in December – on the 10th, to be precise -: Eldest Sis believes strongly in this particular quote: “I think a man does what he can, until his destiny is revealed.” — from The Last Samurai (2003) The quote came to my mind again last night when I joined Mum for … More “I think a man does what he can, until his destiny is revealed.”

(I’m)possible.

Many years ago, at a time when I barely understood the word ‘integrity‘, Third Sis spoke of it with conviction.
