Snapshot: Friendships that sustain us
Sex and the City has always appealed to me because, in spite of all the drawbacks, it focused on four women whose deepening friendship was the leitmotif of the show. Also, I appreciated that it challenged the Ideal Narrative (e.g., every person wants to partner up and have kids) and, even more so, that it critiqued how single people are treated as less than those who are partnered and/or with kids. Are there things I'd change/add? Absolutely. After all, that's why I write - to tell the stories I need. Meanwhile, I'll also take my tales of friendship where I can find them.
