My Best Friend My best friend is someone I’ve known since my childhood. I can almost hear her thoughts and finish her sentences. I was four (4) years old that summer.

Strange? Maybe, but somehow Jill was a big influence on me during my childhood. We had secret handshakes, a shoebox full of notes from each other, many drawings, photographs and picture books. We shared a secret code language on paper that only we could decipher. Having these special things that we shared between us made me feel joy. My favorite was our clubhouse out in the woods. We could yell out loud and listen to the echo. Being young and silly we did this over and over using many funny words. Jill and I always had vivid imaginations. If we could think it, we made it real so we could touch it, feel it, and play out our thoughts. Nature was always something we had a common interest in. As we grew older we shared many adventures. Hearing the sounds of nature I believe is one of our favorite things to share. Canoeing down the St. Croix
