I never feel lonely. How could I? I always got the collective in my pocket.

Could someone pass me out some change for coffee please.

When a ton of my friends called me up cause they heard I wasn’t feeling well. I got calls, texts, and several of them stopped by with a “care package” of soups, Cup of Noodles, magazines, movies, and medicine.

I feel loneliest when I’m with a friend or friends and I’m having trouble forging the connection.
I feel the least lonely whenever I can bring myself to the realization that I do not end at the edges of my skin. That I create my loneliness by fixating on the boundaries of my understood identity.
“Total absorption of the senses” is, to me, the true opposite of alienation/loneliness, rather than something akin to “elation” (which I believe is often considered the opposite of every “negative” emotion).

Oddly enough, when I am left to my own devices. I just feel much more connected to the world when I am able to take a step back.

Generally, the more people there are around me, the more lonely I feel. But a few weeks ago I visited a friend of mine and her parents in Nebraska. While I was there I had a bit of an accident and I sprained my ankle and broke two toes. I couldn’t drive because the foot I hurt was the right one, so I couldn’t put pressure on the gas pedal of my car. I wound up staying there for a week and it turned out to be one of the best weeks of my entire life. I’ve never felt so welcome and wanted and at home. When I finally left, her dad especially seemed so bummed out about it. I wish I could go back and live there.

Just the other day my 2 year old nephew climbed up on my chest, stuck his nose up against mine, giggled and then burrowed under my arm.

Ya and he is such a little imp. He will look at you totally serious almost like he’s mad and then he’ll just break out in this huge grin. He is so adorable

My son was at the beach with friends, and ate something bad, apparently. He called me to come get him – I dropped everything and drove all the way – happily. His look of gratitude and relief did it for me – and he soon felt much better. He just needed a little daddy tlc and some tea (and the bathroom). But I felt lucky and so very not alone; for my son loved me and knew he could count on me; And I, had him.
