Very well written, personable, and informative. It took me back to my childhood. I was able to relive the moment with you. You painted a picture with words that came alive in my head.

Ingrid, this is an excellent Share Your Story and Valentine's Day essay. You start with an explanation of the holiday, "I found it amusing the celebration did not reflect the day of the miracle, but the death of the priest. How many relationships disintegrate on the fourteenth of February?" You then expand your definition of love to include friendship. You describe the special qualities that each friend brings to your life. I love this quote about your discovery:

"One to talk to, the second to play with--have fun--and the third to sleep with. Don't expect one man to be all things. And whatever you do, don't mix up their roles in your life."

This is great advice from a wise woman.

I also enjoyed the clarity and crispness of your prose. I found no flaws. This essay would make a great storytelling performance an stage before an audience, because you have an angle which would appeal to them.

Thank you for sharing, for entertaining, for instructing.

    I have an early history with the stage, but it was always lines, other people's words. Thanks for the stars.

Ah, Ingrid,
I knew there was a warm and fluffy side of you just waiting for the opportunity to show her beautiful-loving face... (of course I knew it all along, but you know me, always the jester and pot-stirrer).

Not only was this a great read, but I learned something new along the way... so that can't be a bad thing, hey?

Loved the sincerity in between every word of friendship and love... the truth sits well when told from the heart... and well, to have a friend such as Avril so close by? Hell, I feel so left out at this present time... where's my Avril? Smile)))))))))))))))))!

As always Ingrid, I enjoyed reading this beautifully written post... guess it's an essay? But no matter what one calls it... there is a style of 'masterfulness' woven within its text... you 'rock' Mumma!

All the very best wishes for this Non Fictional in the 'Share Your Story' contest... I loved it!

With our thoughts we create,
a death, a life and a perfect connection.
James vx's.

    Thanks for the stars, dear man. Avril has received a publishing contract for three books by June. The first one will be launched later this month--The Wishing Well--the one she was writing on FS. It will be launched January 27th through DraginBlade publishing--probably available on Amazon. Her full mane is Avril Borthiry. I doubt you'll see much more of her on here. She's now a pro and writing has become her job. She already has 3-4 books self-published on Amazon.

    Many hugs and...Valentines. ingrid

    Yeah Ingrid know Avril very well, she sent me a signed copy of Triskelion... and Jade and I have been waiting for the launch of her new book... say hello for us when you see her... tell her we're wrapped for her... many hugs back sweet lady... and throw in a couple of kisses as well. vx's

This is a wonderful Valentine's Day read. You incorporated a lot of elements past the day itself in a lifetime of friendships. Your description of the evolution (for lack of better words) of the holiday was very well done. Blessings, AmyJo

Excellent. This is written in your unique style. I never tire of reading your essays. I am pretty much of a loner but do have a couple of special friends. There is no man I would send a valentine card to, not even my husband.

    What a compliment. And, you read three in a row. Your husband? Sounds like a bit of an endurance test. I divorced the first--right decision, and my second died 17 years ago. I celebrate being a born again virgin every year. No compromises needed. Thanks.

Hi there, this was and endearing piece of writing, dedicated to the people and in this case women who means a lot to you. And you also gave a bit of background. Well written. All the best. Ulla:)))

I enjoyed this very much and found I feel much the same way about Valentine's day as you do. I won't be sending out any cards this year. First of all, nothing I send ever gets to its destination from Mexico, and second here it is primarily a romantic occasion, and romance is not even on my list, nor has it been for many years. I do like the idea of sending our female friends Valentines Day wishes...for me, they are the ones that showed true love and support for me in my time of need. I wish I had a 6 to give you for this one, it is so well written and touched a spot in me that has not been touched in quite some time.

What a wonderful story Ingrid and a personal insight into the women who mean the most in your life (okay a few men too LOL)
I liked the analogy of the three different types as well.
Your writing is edgy, interesting but mostly believable. Your nib has a presence as do you and I am SO glad you took the chance and met her.
I took the chance once with someone on here and met here and did not regret it one bit...although we are no longer in contact (we live 12 hours away in different states LOL) I think of her at times and very fondly.
Your write is true inspiration to follow your gut and to trust the ladies you are closest too. We do need men, but sometimes NOT in the capacity they think.

Unfortunately it will be a long time between drinks and their ability to work out a woman's mind. Christ, we haven't even worked that out yet. What fuckin hope do they have? LOL

Loved this, sorry no sixers left, but your write was definitely worthy. So glad you have strong women in your life. That's paramount.

Hugs P
xx

    Happy New Year, Phillipa. There's a huge difference in having a platonic relationship and a romantic one with men. Psst. Let me tell you the secret. In marriage, a man wants to feel superior by being NEEDED. He wants to hear what he wants to hear from his mate and that includes a lot of ego stroking BS. In my male friends, they respect me for being a right-between the-eyes straight shooter--an equal. Not one of them would ever look at me romantically because what they admire about me as a friend, they'd never tolerate or survive as a husband--wouldn't want THE TRUTH/ Thanks for the read.

Hi Ingrid,

You know that I don't hand out sixes lightly, but I really think piece is more than deserving. You have clearly put so much heart into the telling of your story (and not just the doily kind!) These women are lucky to count you as a friend and I'm sure they know that in their hearts, too.

Perfectly written!

Good luck in the contest.

Kim

    Your words are kind and very gracious, the stars lit up my morning was in my forties before I met a true bimbo. I was absolutely shocked at her manipulative, competitive personality. It goes to show I've been very fortunate to have female friends who strive to be the best they can be and have taken me along on the journey. Friendship based on trust and mutual respect continues to be my life's gift.. Thanks again.
