Surprises
15 October 2014

I had known her all my life.  I knew her family and her friends.  I knew every corner of her house.  I knew the names of her pets.

And, only yesterday, I found out for the first time that she could play the piano.

She sat down and pressed her fingers on the black and white keys, making music that made us want to dance and cry at the same time.  I was struck by the fact that I had arrogantly assumed I knew her.  

Surprises like this humble me and remind me that friendships aren't always instant.  I know I've quoted Alexander McCall Smith before, but, really, he says it much better than I do!  "You can go through life and make new friends every year - every month, practically - but there was never any substitute for those friendships of childhood that survive into adult years.  Those are the ones in which we are bound to one another with hoops of steel."  And there's always more to discover about a person!
