Then I had close friends with whom I went through middle school. I developed a different set of friends in high school.
I left college with a few close friends and I later bonded…. I walk with my friend every day. We walk just enough to raise our heart rates and soothe our souls. We walk just enough to vent the accumulated bile and open the valve on our frustrations so that we can put on a happier face at home.
There is so little going on but so…. But a few days ago, when my…. I know we all have our own struggles as we try and get through this new life of sheltering in place in order to save lives.
