    I Have My Days....

    Most good, some a little sad. I left my husband a year ago. I lived on my own for a long time before I met him, so it's not virgin territory for me. I'm still relieved to be away from the stress. I used to hate going home, now I never want to leave. I have a lot to be grateful...

    The Grand Design

    I sometimes can't help but believe that I am destined to wander this world alone. My company is of the best kind; or so i'm told. Wherever I go I am loved by many, sometimes all. Whenever I travel I am always alone. I sometimes believe my loneliness is the balance that allows...

    I find it quite absurd

    when I have people displaying their (pseudo) concern prying all over my lonely life. There's a difference between being lonely and being alone. I find solace in being alone, la la la.
