Thought for today:
‘Constant use had not worn ragged the fabric of their friendship.’

My thoughts have turned to seeing friends again.
There are many friends I have not seen in person since early 2020, and more still I haven’t seen since 2019.
How do you prioritise?
What if you find yourself low on someone’s list when they are high on yours?
Friendships change over the years – some deepen and others end.
How has lockdown (in the UK at least) affected your friendships?
I realise that it is not just about maintaining contact, we have all changed as a result of our experiences.
I also realise that there is a slight anxiety about meeting people again – something I didn’t expect to feel.
Robert Crampton wrote in The Times today that he would like lockdown to last a little longer.
He feels that slight difficulty, slight anxiety, about meeting people face to face.
And to be honest, I don’t want to feel this way.
I owe too many people a hug!
