Kath’s postcards

When I interviewed Kath, she’d just moved out of a busy share-house. Her housemates had been old friends, or else they’d ended up that way. Now, in her new flat, she had space and quiet. It was what she’d wanted, but it still felt strange.

“The first night, it felt a bit cold, a bit intimidating, but then I heard the sounds of people upstairs.”

They were strangers, of course, but she still found their sounds comforting. “People feel very close,” said Kath. “I was worried that I’d get lonely, but I’m not. At least so far.”
