Family and Friends
I have not had any real contact with my immediate or extended family for many years.
I have many friends around the world with a wide range of different relationships on different levels in different contexts.
I am honest and open as far as I am able to be with my friends, and I am prepared to lose their friendship if they do not like what I say.
I regard true friendship as being built upon mutual understanding and respect for each other including a willingness to give without taking too much.
Many of my closest life long friends are spread across the world.
