Awhile back, I was being interviewed, about how people who are estranged from their families… feel. I found the question curious – as though it was possible to say that all estranged people feel this feeling or that feeling. As though there was a very limited and specialized set of estranged feelings. Of course there are emotional themes, common across estrangement. We know estrangement often mirrors or follows a grieving process like the one posed by Elisabeth Kübler-Ross. We know we often recycle that process indefinitely as estrangement is rarely a finite process.
