I like my own company, I love my own space, I enjoy time on my own, I like solitary moments. Do you or are you a people person, craving company, needing people around all the time? As a young person I needed people, always had people around, was always out and about never sitting at home with a book or a movie and a coffee. A few years ago, when the girls were all in school and I wasn't needed in the classroom to offer my expert help and opinions, I found myself at the movies on my own, gasp, horror. Yes I found that the movies I like, the arty ones that have a short run and only a half filled theatre were on Wednesday mornings and for $5.00 I could watch the movie and have a coffee and cake. I was in movie heaven. These were the movies that I knew Adrian would fall asleep in and I would love. So began my venture into solitary moments. Next came coffee shop outings. A book or magazine in front of me for safety and so I didn't look like I was really on my own, I would end up people watching and sipping coffee and eating more cake. I began to enjoy my time alone. Five am walks on cool foggy mornings when the world felt like it was just mine alone, walks in parks, camera in hand all the time in the world to snap away, more me time.
I am a fairly solitary person, friends I can count on one hand, has always been my way, family paramount in all things. I am what I am I guess, I can't be any other way really and still be true to me, I change as my life changes and I love my friends, and family, but I love my solitary moments too.
