“Well, it seems to me that the best relationships - the ones that last - are frequently the ones that are rooted in friendship." -- Gillian Anderson (aka Dana Scully)
Friendships are interesting duels of competing interests and needs which can be mutually helpful and upbuilding. Or not.
I thought BW offers the best visual interpretation for this intertwined friendship/relationship of tree and clinging vine which I recently found in the Everglades.
Reminds me of some complicated personal relationships I've known.
