They always have, and if I’d ever harbored any doubts on the subject (though I never really did), they were assuaged last night. Yesterday, March 14, was my sixty-second birthday. Franklin Spaulding, who has been my attorney for decades, hosted a party in my honor at the Grill on the Green. Positively everyone I knew attended, plus a few people I didn’t: the pastor and deacons of the Congregational Church (whose new fellowship hall I ﬁnanced and whose services I attend on major holidays), the directors of the Wynne Memorial Library, the County Women’s Shelter, the New Bern Historic Preservation Society, the Nature Preserve Foundation, the Concert Association, and assorted other community organizations that count on me for advice and contributions, as well as the various board members of those organizations, not to mention P A Single Thread • 25 the many merchants who own the antique shops, art galleries, design studios, clothing boutiques, jewelers, restaurants, and bookstores that I frequent, plus all the people I know through my memberships in the tennis, golf, and equestrian clubs, and, of course, the spouses, partners, and signiﬁcant others of all the aforementioned.

I couldn’t believe what had just happened. “He can’t be serious,” I said, turning around and looking at Franklin, who was looking at me with an expression that, had I not been certain that he had to realize the disastrous nature of the situation, might have passed for amusement.
That is a different matter. Emotions are sticky things, and even more inconvenient than friendships. I don’t trust them. Truthfully, I don’t trust in much of anything except my own ability to handle whatever life sends my way. If I am proud of anything, it is that. I can take care of myself, and I always have. ” Which I took to mean that the only person you can or should depend upon is yourself, so it’s best to keep yourself to yourself. It was advice I took to heart, and, until my phone rang at nine forty-ﬁve on the day after my birthday party, it was advice that served me well.
