Heidi here. I have a few really good friends, and a million people I know from working in community for years.
If you're walking around town with me, chances are we will run into someone that I know from somewhere. I've worked in schools, community centres, I've run for politics, I read tarot here, I've been an artist in Vancouver for 20 years, I've worked in random spots, I've ridden the bus constantly. If you don't know me, I'm probably one of those faces that you know from somewhere.
I kind of like that, and kind of not, depending on the day and how social I am feeling. It really depends on my mood. Sometimes I have those social spoonies, and sometimes I don't. It's hard to say. But I love that people feel warmly towards me, and I don't take that for granted. It's special to be a special person to people. It's good to be appreciated, and that is precious to me.
What about you? Do you have a million friends? Are you more of a a small circle or big circle type of person?
