    I Have My Modern Cave

    Lately I have begun to isolate and not call people. I've disconnected my home phone and rarely answer my cell phone. I find that I save money and by not having to entertain others I can have no faults that can be depicted as good or bad. I like being alone. I don't have to deal...

    Loneliness Is My Best Friend

    Hi, I live a life on my own and perhaps in the beginning it was hard. I found at a very early age that whenever we used to go down to the coast for holidays. I would dart off down to the rocks and spend endless hours playing in the rock pools in my imaginary world. Whether this...
