enclosed entity of the ego.
Now the mind is speaking.

One of the greatest titles we can have is "old friend."
We never appreciate how important old friends are until we are older.

can cause us to neglect those friends.
Today is the day to invest in those people
we hope will call us "old friend" in the years to come.
