This is Leela, a woman who could easily have occupied all 12 slots in this countdown.
A woman of many passions and indecisions, she easily ranks as my best friend, my confidante, and likely the only one who truly understands my soul…probably better than I do. No matter what I accomplish in life, in times of my greatest darkness, or when I simply need a soothing voice, Leela is the person to whom I turn first. And I hope I offer even a smidgen of the same to her.
It can take some effort to get to truly know Leela, but the rewards of doing so make any effort seem insignificant.
