Simple Lessons

You’re young and you grow old and, if you’re lucky, you have a friend who travels with you from somewhere near the start to somewhere near the end.

That’s the concluding sentence of a column by Mary Schmich in today’s Tribune.  She tells an uncomplicated tale of a lifelong friendship between two men who, coincidentally, now find themselves living in the same retirement community.  It’s a great reminder that the most fulfilling paths in life are often straightforward and unambiguous.  The arc of a good relationship may seem obvious and clear, but as Schmich points out, the predictability of that path in no way diminishes its rewards.
