I used to be in place where I had friends I could go see on a regular basis – had places to go see them, and to explore many things….but I think those days have passed. These days, I go to work, do my good job, and then come home. Family life is good, and I have no complaints about that at all, but one needs friends as well outside of work and family, and those seem to be lacking anymore. Most of have left town, have moved on, have broken off ties, or whatever else may have happened. Maybe that’s one of the reasons why I miss Denver – I had a group of friends that I saw, and not just at work.
I appreciate those that I work with – I have no problem there – but outside of those hours, I’m sure they have more interesting things to do than to talk with me, and I don’t begrudge them of that one bit. I guess I just miss being able to casually go and talk and be with people – just to enjoy some time and conversation. I guess that’s what happens when you get older – the younger set would rather be around their own age, and don’t want to be around us older people anymore.
Am I feeling sorry for myself – possibly, but I am a bit depressed right now, as I really don’t have anyone who comes by to say hi anymore.
At least I have my health, my family, and my job – maybe that’s enough.
