I just awoke from an afternoon nap. I needed it. I’d spent the morning reading about the Balkans and Latino migrant workers in the UK. That material sends you to sleep. So I did for an hour. I woke up with vivid memories of being in a bar or restaurant, behind the scenes but not working there. Former friends did though. I say former because these were all people I’m no longer in contact with for various reasons. Almost actively so. We’ve just forgotten each other. We smiled at each other but made no effort beyond that. Sad how that happens. Probably natural but in a time of easy communication, it seems confusing. Almost embarrassed to start a conversation.
