It is a special pleasure to welcome you to my blog, Circle of Friends, International. This blog is inspired by the bonds of friendship I have been fortunate to maintain with many friends over a lifetime and others I have only recently met. Despite the length of our friendship, I have come to realize and appreciate the empowering effects of friendship, experiencing the ways in which it is a joyful & purposeful step towards actualization. I am honored that you have taken the time to visit this blog and hope that you enjoy the posts. Please do not hesitate to leave a comment or share a reflection or two about the value of friendship in your own life.
