  •  The first friend I remember (5+ / 0-)

    was the daughter of my mother's best friend. We lost touch sometime after my family moved from New York to California. Some years later (my memory is very fragmented about this) I tried to find her and her mother? gave me address, but warned me that she had joined some kind of cultish religion here in California, but I thought it was great that she was close, so I wrote to her.

    She replied that we could get together, but only if I was genuinely interested in learning about her faith and not connecting on a personal level. I don't remember if there was any further correspondence, but we never met.

    If it were to happen today, I would pretend that I was curious about her religion and meet to see what's what, but back then (30? years ago) I was not as clever as I am now.
