on friendships

"When we honestly ask ourselves which person in our lives mean the most to us, we often find that it is those who, instead of giving advice, solutions, or cures, have chosen rather to share our pain and touch our wounds with a warm and tender hand. The friend who can be silent with us in a moment of despair or confusion, who can stay with us in an hour of grief and bereavement, who can tolerate not knowing, not curing, not healing and face with us the reality of our powerlessness, that is a friend who cares."
- Henri Nouwen -

I came upon this print last week at our day trek in Granville Island. I wish that instead of taking a photo of it, that I actually bought it --- how I love the quiet simplicity of it yet, for me, it has so much meaning and depth... I guess more on the emotional level. I just hope I can still find it when I go back!

I just adore these types of prints.
