"We were all financially struggling and that made us real. Maybe affluence is at the root of social alienation."

I think you have something there. We own a home on a 1950's development's street. Our neighbors are a mix of elderly people who have been here as long as the houses, and young couples like ourselves who've bought homes from the children of these original homeowners when their parents have passed. We know each others' dogs and talk when out walking them. I appreciate this in my neighborhood, and I know how you must miss yours.

If you can muster the courage, try to find community again. It's worth it.
