This area of this web site used to belong to my weekly ezine, the RoseBouquet, but it has moved to it's own blog sub-domain, and I'm now changing this area to be
full of articles and pages on friendship. Since I like the imagary of my friends as various flowers and roses in a lovely
garden, this is my RoseBouquet Place.
You will find over time, many articles on friendship and mentoring all indexed here. There will also be letters to particular friends, although names will be changed
here to protect the privacy of those I was originally addressing.
There will be sections for those Needing Friends, and those wanting advice on Maintaining Friendships.
If you'll excuse me while I continue to set things up, you are welcome to browse around. New pages will be linked from this main index page
to this RoseBouquet Place, so you might want to bookmark it.
