In the Name of Familiarity

Would a place still be familiar to you if all the people you had ever known there suddenly left, or disappeared, and were replaced by unfriendly strangers?

Perhaps you have always lived in a place of many unfriendly strangers!

Some strangers can be very pleasant and friendly, even - or especially - after we know them better.

And some people we know well as friends may often prefer to keep themselves to themselves, enjoying their own company for much of the time, rather than being deliberately unfriendly.

What do you believe to be the connection between identity and familiarity?
