jati: a group of souls whose destinies are bound together. In each life, they gravitate toward each other, impelled by mystic forces of attraction.
from kim stanely robinson`s the years of rice and salt.
i think i`m starting to recognise the members of my jati. some of them have been in my life for a while, some of them i`ve met recently, but the more i need them, the more their presence is felt in my life.
it`s interesting, how support and friendship come from sources you least expect. not `yes` people, but the people who are willing to smack you upside your stupid fucking head and ask you what you`re doing with your life.
more and more i`m recognising the value of true friendship. i have a lot of acquaintances but the true friends list is short and even some of those are not in my jati.
thank you for being there. you know who you are.
years of rice and salt, jati
