I wonder what ever happened to friendship. As a child I had so many friends. We shared our lunch, played in the rain, talked about boys, pinky swears on everything, bared our souls, idolized boy bands together. In my teens, I had friends on every street corner, or was it my definition of friendship that was too innocent to limit to just a few people. I believed in time I would boast even more friends, but no. Life as an adult is different, still know a lot of people but where are my friends. Is it my definition that has changed I wonder. We all seem guarded now, protective of ourselves, especially me. We talk to each other through a filter thicker than a clump of weeds, we don’t trust anymore, we are afraid, are adult hearts more fragile than children’s hearts I wonder, or is it the stakes that are just higher if you get it wrong. Birds in a cage looking out…..
