The tools are immaterial, the resulting piece is what's most important.

It is rewarding to see an elderly couple together. Are they still lovers as well as companions and friends? I believe all three relationships differ to some degree. In a relationship, I believe you need to be everything to last for a lifetime.

There are different types of friendships and they do not always involve doing things together. Companions usually serve a purpose to one another. And a lover isn’t always a companion. With a companion, you have someone to do things with, to go places with.

We all need human connection, regardless of what role we play. But a companion is someone you are comfortable with and share a mutual admiration and interests. It is two people whom, I believe, have one of the best relationships you can ask for. And companionship can be between any two types of personalities or people.

I look around and I think a lot of elderly people are looking for companionship in their later years. The sexual attraction is usually not an issue. They want a companion to do things with. They want to fill that void of loneliness. I don’t think there is anything sadder than loneliness.

Two is always better than one. And as they say, “One is the loneliest number,” and I find that to be true.

For my shot of the week...

Treasure your friends and the people you love around you.
