Conversations with Friends

Here I will share thoughts that were triggered by a question.  The question may be my own doubt.  It may be a question from a friend or a something I heard or read in newsfeed, internet or social media. 

For keeping the sanctity of confidentiality, names you read of “friends” will be changed to aliases.  Likewise, potential identifying details will also be modified.  Yet, in an effort to keep the core essence of each conversation real, some personal and intimate information will be shared. My hope is to maintain the authentic nature of each conversation, allowing you, the reader, to better connect with the conversation.

In addition to conversations with friends, I will share stories about my own personal experiences and update you, dear readers, with what is happening with me nowadays.

My hope is that you will be inspired to add your own questions, joining me in conversation.  Ultimately we’ll transform this into a community of friends traveling this journey of life together.
