Changed For The Better

Wicked - Kristin Chenowith and Idina Menzel - For Good

My friends have been on my mind a lot lately.  I sense change is on the horizon - losses of many kinds.  The thing about friends is that each one is a wave in our ocean, coming and going with the tide.  Some are steady and strong, some wash away leaving debris in their wake.  Some crash and are gone. 

Being an island really isn't the answer to avoiding hurt.  Like with anything, joy and sadness are the yin and yang of any relationship.  Right now it's difficult to find the joys, but sooner or later my yellow brick road will lead me there.

"And now whatever way our stories end, I know you have rewritten mine by being my friend.  Like a comet pulled from orbit as it passes the sun; like a stream that meets a boulder halfway through the wood.  Who can say if I've been changed for the better?  I do believe I have been changed for the better... because I knew you, I have been changed for good..."
