1. A connection that was once bilateral has become unilateral and therefore has to be relinquished. Connections don’t work one way.
2. A connection that I had long thought irreversibly faded has returned to good health.
3. A relatively new and valuable friendship appears to have been laid waste by my unfortunate habit of being careless in what I say and how I say it.
A bit tempest-tossed?
(A Russian woman spoke to me today via YouTube. That’s unusual, but not special yet.)
