It was close to midnight and the pre-emptive textmessages and phone calls came trickling in… Well wishes from London, Antwerp, Dublin and Paris. People partying in cool bars, fancy restaurants, or snuggled up on the sofa with partners, or playing boardgames with friends, taking time to contact me. It just showed how friendship comes in different shapes and forms; friends do not need to be near you to still be close.
Still as the clock struck twelve I knew I wouldn’t want to be anywhere else than around the campfire just outside a small town with that great group of friends around me.
Happy New Year Everyone! Bring on 2010!
