LWTL: Sometimes in todays world it is difficult to balance work, health, friendships, family and the many other things that make their way on to our agendas. How do you stay connected with your girlfriends?

MR: There are some girlfriends I don’t even have to try with. Things naturally come together then they do and we just know and trust that we love each other. Others I make efforts with, calls and emails telling them that I am thinking of them. I think women need each other sometimes to make sense of the world.
