The Big Chill

There are some people who I have been getting to know on my friends list and in real life for the last couple of years or so, who are younger than me, and a lot of them have known each other for a long time.

It seems from some of the things I've read recently that they're drifting away from each other, life is calling them out away from each other into the world. And I remember when it happened to me, and thinking there was something wrong with me, why couldn't I keep my family of friends going, why couldn't I have that warm circle anymore? And I guess up until now, despite the there being many movies and books stating the contrary, I thought that it should have been easy to stay close. Instead, I felt cast out, even when I was the one who was going away.

I guess we just all want to return to the womb... but it's funny how sometimes you can get insight so many years later, and it suddenly snaps into place.
