Missing My Girlfriends...

I have been missing my girlfriends for a few days now. I wished I could take a walk with them and talk about nothing and everything. I miss talking to those who know so much about me, I don't need to explain anything, to introduce anyone, and to divulge any secrets in order to ask for their advice and support, as it goes with girlfriends. I'm homesick for more than my home today. Photo From Fars News Agency, June 12, 2007, Ashayer women attending a wedding.

I know what you mean. I often refer to myself, "Girl Interrupted" or better yet for us in diaspora "Lives interrupted".

Thanks Serendip. I often think that at my (unmentioned) age, it is so hard to walk up to people and say "Hi! My name is Nazy. My favorite color is blue. Will you be my friend?" Though we do it because we must, and gain many important and valuable friendships this way, it is so much easier if we could carry some of our older friends with us through the different iterations and "versions" of our lives, so that shared memories and information do not have to be re-told and will only have to be repeated in reminisces not in explanation. I hope I make sense.
