the middle ground

by rantywoman

I’m at a midway point, checking out some tourist attractions, and I’ve run into several people (all couples thus far) who are making their own moves across the country.

One couple is in the process of moving back to L.A. after five years in the area of the country I’m heading to. They have no family in that area and were afraid of getting too “settled in.” Now they feel like they will be starting over in L.A., as their friends have all had kids and scattered.

I told them I felt the same, and we wished each other well on our journeys.
