gruel

by rantywoman

I live in in a city with endless recreational and cultural opportunities.  Endless.

So it’s amazing to me how the social scene consists of such thin gruel.  Yes, I have a handful of friends (each living a half-hour to an hour away and only casually knowing each other), but I have nothing even close to what I would consider a community.  I once heard a man with an exciting career say on a podcast that the only time he felt a sense of community in this city was around his children’s school.  I wish he had elaborated, because honestly, if he feels that way, I am fucked.

Despite all, I have kicked my physical activity up a notch and with a renewed sense of energy and purpose am planning to take advantage of what this city does have to offer.
