There's a Void

How do you lose touch with people? Perhaps geography? Perhaps interests change, you outgrow connections. Economics change. Politics change.

Maybe you read different books? Maybe one person loves contemporary art while the other abhors anything that isn't representational. One person resonates to loud thumping music while the other person only listens to string quartets and classical music.

Maybe someone reads fiction and the other person derides anything but hard facts. Maybe one person reads cozy mysteries where the murder occupies half a page and no blood is mentioned while the other person loves standing right beside the pathologist.

Maybe someone held on to a grudge until it became a boulder.

Maybe someone doesn't know the road back.

Maybe it's just as well—there are too many differences.
