The Cost of Visiting a Close Friend
Beth Swanson

Most of my friends live in a different state than me. In addition to the cost of visiting, there is also the issue of time: if I traveled to visit each friend over the year, I would be traveling non-stop. There’s a constant anxiety of time passing that it has been too long since we saw each other in person. I have made some of the trips, and they’re usually disappointing. You see someone who used to live life with you side-by-side and the new life they have and see you’re not really needed any more and the only thing you have to talk about is the past.
