  •  it's gonna be a long process (5+ / 0-)

    we have become quite dispersed and scattered around the country, leaving family and friends behind.

    It will require some reconsolidation and returning to geographic roots to reconnect with family networks that may be able to hold people up.

      or we may have to develop extended families of unrelated people.  "families of convenience", or "families of affinity," or "mother is the necessity of invention?"

        but maybe I'm myopic.  Urban people have a sixth sense about someone in need...and they tend to keep them at arm's length, at best.  

        No...I think it will have to be about reconnecting with family, wherever they may be.  At the end of the day, they won't turn you away or pretend you don't exist.  

        Families of convenience sounds grand, but we are socially wired to be independent and self contained.
