My time in Australia was a period of uncomfortable growth. In fact there were moments that were completely horrid. But, having said that, it was also a time when I learned the true value of friends. I've never been a socialite. I prefer to have one or two true friends and am uncomfortable in crowds. Perhaps being an only child for a long time contributed to that. Never the less the friendships that I made had a profound impact on me. I still keep in touch with a few special friends and have just renewed contact with someone very special.
