    I Spend A Lot Of Time Alone

    It's just easier. I don't have to deal with other people or their opinions of me. When I'm alone, I don't need permission to do anything or to have irrelevant conversations about nothing I care about. I don't like people and I don't like living with them, either.

    Alone But Not Lonely

    My alone time is very important to me. Especially after an evening with dinner or overnight guests. I like to have people around but lately a whole lot seem suffocating. To some I may appear antisocial when I escape to our front veranda for solace and fresh air when I'm cooking...
