The Three Graces Aglaia, Euphrosyne and Thalia, daughters of Zeus, dance arm in arm in celebration and friendship, holding aloft their cups. Spend time with your tribe. Revel in the love and laughter that flows between you, the teasing and “in jokes” that only friendships like these can bring. Feel free to be yourself, knowing that you are loved, and not judged. In a world where friends are often far away, reach out to those you’ve not spoken to in a while, appreciating that even after weeks, your conversation will start up as though you’ve never been apart.
