Mind the gap

October 13, 2017

Looking back, my teens and twenties were spent with friends swimming in my same pool. We were all the same age, doing more or less the same thing. It wasn’t until my thirties that my community of friends broadened to the salmagundi that it is today. And in the last three years, it’s women in their mid to late 60s that I gravitate toward. They’re smart and funny and beautiful. They’re raised kids, survived cancer, had three careers, trekked the Andes, and here they are, swimming laps and throwing pots with me. I haven’t lived in the same city as my Mum since I was 19. I miss her. Sometimes, I think it’s that missing piece that draws me to these bright, brilliant, fiery women. Perhaps. Sometimes, I think it’s because they’re on the other side of where I am now. Anyway, I’m lucky to have found them. I think they might feel the same.
