    I am very lonely right now.

    I just sat on my right hand until it went numb and then held it with my left hand so it felt like I was holding hands with someone. I wish I'm holding hands with someone. but I'm not. I'm lonely.

    There was a cyclist killed in my neighborhood

    on Friday. The community responded with a "meeting/memorial ride." I attended because I was deeply moved (I saw the body in the street, I am a cyclist and a motorist) by this man's death. I know that people respond/process things like this in their own way. I know that tragedy...
