IF - Clique (klēk, klĭk) – coterie, set, group, a circle of friends.

'After School Indaba'

“Don't walk in front of me, I may not follow;
Don't walk behind me, I may not lead;
Walk beside me, and just be my friend”
~Albert Camus

One of the greatest things about conversations with girl friends is the eclectic range of subject matter that may be discussed. With a good glass of merlot and a bowl of nibbles, girls will talk about anything from desserts to Dadaism; from pot plants to Plato; from babies to Beethoven; from eggplants to Eco systems…….and everything between! Some of the very best ‘deep and meaningfuls’ I’ve ever had, have been with a group of my girl friends.
