Right now, I’m struck by a desire to live in a giant warehouse with a big group of friends, and host dinners, parties, make creative projects and stay up all night talking. (Which is probably because I just visited this blog for the house a bunch of my friends live in.)
And, of course, our atomised society, in which as you grow older you spend your time with fewer and fewer people, means I will likely never have that.
I suppose the smart thing to do would be to try to create it in other ways: through my workspace, by hosting regular parties and events of my own, by being grateful for the amazing communities I have been and am a part of.
And the good things about these pangs, I guess, is that they keep us conscious of what we value and what we want.
