Friends feed your heart. Soulmates settle your soul.

Friends are there so you can laugh and cry over the same things. They help you glam up the mundane. Friends gloss over, or agree with your biases.

A soulmate charms you, completes your sentences and pushes your patience. Perhaps in equal measure. A soulmate helps you face the mundane head on.

Soulmates make you a little bit crazy. Friends are a little bit crazy. That’s why you like them.

Family sit in the pockmarked no man’s land, between your soulmate and your friends. They might put up some barbed wire. Or simply sunbathe and call out to you from time to time, when the shelling gets intense.

Whether you hang out in the bunker with your friends, man the front line with your soulmate, or search out your family in no man’s land, depends on your agility, your resilience and the orders you give yourself.

Catchphrases of life

On a good day, we walk three paths. One with our feet. One with our hearts. And one with our minds.

Time with little ones is precious. A day spent with the under fives is worth a month of arguments with teenagers.

Meeting your soulmate is like two satellites orbiting around the relationship to be. Either you keep moving, or you commit to splashing down and creating a beautiful ecosystem.

Most beautiful thing in the universe -a mother’s love for her children. The most ugly thing – male vanity.
