The world is absolutely inundated with people wanting to FRIEND and be FRIENDED and the moment the “deal” is clinched, sealed and delivered, we hop onto the next FRIEND “deal” Then when it is no longer a viable connection, we end it with a push of one button, this is the way of the cyber world we are living in.
But just once in a while our attentions are drawn to the real world, the world of emotions, like being acutely aware of being alone, not being alone like a writer is, but actually feeling lonely and being kind of discarded. Humans are social animals and thrive in packs that is why much of what we do, involves other people in one way or another, this is why even the homeless and the societally discarded souls clump together. We are all drawn to things like these and wonder, what went wrong?
