I am often alone in the real world, and the virtual one. Between varying time zones and work hours, often I don't see my guildmate Señor until the weekends, and even then we are both busy people. CD Rogue's sleep and health schedule is also polar opposite of mine: many the only times our paths cross is around 3AM if he has a low blood sugar and, or I have insomnia. Tome's schedule is different from mine, and Navi is hanging on for dear life upside-down in the Southern Hemisphere. Hang on, Navi! Let earth's gravitational forces keep you safe!
Being alone is something I relish, and sometimes even being lonely isn't so bad. It's the contrast that keeps things interesting. I worry about all the noise pollution in our inner and outer worlds young people are never allowing themselves the chance to get to know themselves, to just enjoy the peace, and time spent in their own heads. Perhaps I need to remind myself to not always seek company, seek contact, but if I am feeling edgy or anxious, retreat.
