How do you keep in touch with your best friends?
My mom marvels at how I’ve managed to maintain multi-decade-long best friendships from country to country, coast to coast. The funniest part, in thinking about it, is that my actual closest girlfriends do not use social media much, which is the complete opposite of my daily way of NYC communicado. Go figure! I realized, though, the secret to our never ending connection is speaking (at least) every couple of days, only for five minutes. I know, that sounds kooky, right? But it works. I call on my walk to the subway in the morning or they’ll give me a ring on a drive home from dinner out. Anything goes, and hearing favorite voices favors a brighter day, whether you’re in Cambodia, Cape Cod or Canarsie.
