I was reading an article in this months frankie and I haven't stopped thinking about it. I can't remember the name of the article or the person who wrote it (and I'm far to lazy to pick it up and flick through it). What grabbed my attention was a comment about being "a sometimes friend".
Since I've moved back from the states I think I've become a "sometimes friend". This is the first place I have ever lived where I don't have a friend that I could call to go and have lunch or even have a coffee with.
I have friends at home (which is an hours drive south), friends in the NT, friends overseas, friends all over the place... but no friends here.
So I think that I'm a sometimes friend.
