Yesterday I managed to see two of my sisters and one brother. I don't see enough of them really. At the current rate I would expect to see them a few dozen times before I peg-it. I'd like to see them many times more but the fact is we rarely meet. It's a good job we have other means of communication.
I have learned something about myself though which is at odds with wanting to see more of people. Although I'd hate not to have the freedom to visit whatever and whoever I like, I feel more comfortable in isolation. I think my life would be more fulfilled living a basic and simple life and lifestyle.
I find myself longing to chop wood in order to remain warm, growing things and being a part of a community small enough to know everyone on first-name terms.
I guess as we get older we tend to become more isolated anyway and the reality is that eventually I'll have a 50/50 chance of total isolation and hating every second of it. The strange thing is that I don't want to be alone all of the time. I just want to be alone when I want to be alone...about a 70/30 or 80/20 split. I love to blog, talk, share and interact.
I can see a time not far distant that I can have the best of both worlds.
