Clearly I need both, but since I’ve always taken my communities for granted, I may have focused my life (and this blog) on solitude, which is harder to obtain. Many of us feel that we have too many people in our lives, so the challenge is to craft out meaningful chunks of time alone. How many? For how long? How to do it? When?
Another topic. I have a sinus infection, which includes headache, dehydration, lack of energy... That’s the downside. After all, who would want to feel rotten? And yet, I am rather enjoying talking naps, sitting in the silence, and have an acceptable excuse not to do much. Um, interesting that I wanted to write this blog. Must be some version of following my bliss.
