#17 - A profound, joyful poem about friendship

In this episode, I read "On Friendship" by Kahlil Gibran. This is from his 1923 book "The Prophet" which has been translated into a 100 languages and is now available in the public domain. It's a book of prose poetry and this verse today is a response to the question "What is friendship?" I find it reassuring that no matter how much the world changes things like love, friendship, kindness, goodness of heart, desire, envy - these things that make us human stay the same. This here about friendship, and the rest some other time.
