"Got it for my wife as a holiday gift. she loves it. The thank you she gave me was hair raising. so guys..get your lady some of this and she might just drop to her knees in thanks."
Meryl Streep: The two of us. Together. We could rule the world.
Robin Wright: I’m sure we could.
Meryl: You smile as though you think I’m joking, but allow me to be very clear. I’m not.
Robin: I know you’re not. And I’m interested.
Not all of these new friendships will be permanent; that's okay. Some only lasted the time it took to drain a pint at a party and some are still being tended to, gently solidifying around the edges. Even when short-lived and temporary, they are about feeding off each others energy and ideas, mutual femininity and humanity and even sometimes giving practical job advice or tips for owning a meeting. But they are informing me and how I want to be a person in this year and the years to come and for that, I am eternally grateful.
On my year of female friendships
"Erykah, I thought. I can hear you!”
Sarah Miller imagines a series of positive book reviews: http://nyr.kr/IHXYjJ
“Moby-Dick,” by Herman Melville
“The characters are as rollicking and fun as the ocean setting. The narrator, Ishmael, is just a really good guy, while Ahab, a ship’s captain, allows us to remember that anger happens when we don’t process our sadness, which is every bit as precious as our joy. Ultimately, ‘Moby-Dick’ is a gripping story about a diverse group of men putting aside their differences to create lifelong friendships on a hand-crafted sailboat.”
