A bit of beauty from Alasdair Fraser and Natalie Haas on Sunday night, for no special reason. Only that I was thinking of the miracle of friendships, laid brick by brick, word by word, question by question. Through years, through the ether, through the wonder of the internet, through generations, wonder piled on wonder, no? Here's to you, Tom. To you, Sami, Sahar, Haider, Laith and Mo and Hamed. To you Magda, and you, Hanna. And you, Sri Lanka, whose name I don't know (thanks for stopping by so often. I hope peace flourishes soon in your country).
