almost psychic extent, of understanding the emotional needs of their
companions and meeting them with their own innate optimism - they are

Today seems appropriate for a reflective, stroll down memory lane journey.
About thirteen years ago, on the outdoor grounds of torturous high school, I was
introduced to fellow creative free spirited, quiet yet humorous, Asia Aneka Anderson, whom prior to meeting, Stephanie Bramel had quoted, "You have got to meet this girl. She's a lot like you."
