I write this text having in front of me my friend’s friend. We are doing what has already become our signature thing: to spend the mornings seated in some cute coffee shop pretending that we are studying or working. The truth is that we enjoy doing nothing together. It is an easy, funny, effortless nothing, that kind of nothing only possible with someone that you know by heart for a long time.
Time. How much time is necessary for an acquaintance to become a friend? And what about best friend? It has been approximately two weeks since I met Lili: my friend’s friend.
My friend: Lara. If you know me at all you have learned that that’s my daughter’s name. It wasn’t picked to honor our friendship, it happened because of all the great feelings these four letters bring to my soul. She (Lara – the friend) is a mixture of sister, daughter and friend. I feel like smooching, kissing, giving advice, taking to the club, listening, stoping her crying… basically I feel very lucky to have her in my life.
Living in another hemisphere doesn’t help our friendship, but love sees no problem on that. Thank God it’s like this!
It wasn’t a long ago when she told me: a very good friend of mine is moving to Hoboken. Maybe you can meet each other. I think you’re gonna like her!
I did! I think this is how life is. If two people love someone, bigger are the chances that they will like each other. In our case the chances were ginormous!
With no further ado I present to you the great Lili: she speaks french, she is sweet, beautiful, intelligent, funny, easy going and is my friend’s friend that now is my friend. How lucky am I!
