    I Have My Modern Cave

    More Semi-reclusive Than Reclusive

    A lot of the stories I've read on this site depict people who are recluses but do not really wish to be. I do and I am and have more or less been semi-reclusive most of my adult life. During the time that I interacted *very* socially with other people, I did so because...
