A Few Good Men

Looking through the photos I took on the weekend there was one that I particularly loved - but for a deeper reason than just because it was a photo of people that are important to me.

It's really easy to focus on how wonderful my friendships with the same sex are - those chickies near and dear to me that are both here in Sydney and scattered around the globe. However I find it's easier to forget about the men in my life, and how lucky I am to know the people that I do. These two above, as well as the Lemming men, Nik and Scruff below, they all inspire me with their honour, courtesty, integrity, support for those who need it, their intelligence and all round 'goodness' - their actions and their words are authentic and lead others to treat them with respect. Yay them basically. I feel lucky!

(I never said they were 'Normal'!!!)

Here! Here! Well said! And no, they are not 'normal' and we thank the stars for that.

Fabulous montage as well!

re-reading this it does sound a bit soppy. Basically this morning I was trying to work out why the pic seemed more than just a pic of my friends. Then I thought it's coz you can tell that they are damn good people etc etc etc. blah blah

Blame the anti-histamine/ibuprofen/codeine cocktail. mmmmmm cocktail ;)

none of us can buy into that hoary old 'all men are bastards' routine when all the men we hang with are so patently NOT. and I love them just the way you've described them. boys and girls, we have the most triffikestly group ever, and long may it rock.

and so naturally modest too ;-)

I really like this photo. Shows their boyish intensity, their interest in what they are taking part in.
And they are both fabulous boys.
I think that helps too.
