An interesting point, Stephanie. Thanks for writing. I suppose however or whenever we show up in a former friend's life uninvited we risk a tremor. Where are you from in Africa? I had a memorable visit to a friend in S. Africa, speaking of tectonic shifts in a relationship, though our rift and reconiciliation occurred long before our visit and she's now one of my closest friends. I wish I'd remembered that episode while writing my piece. I'm going to look up your writing.
