SocraticGadfly: Loneliness vs. aloneness

Loneliness vs. aloneness

Definitely for the first time since I moved to Far South Metroplex in January, I really felt not just “aloneness” but “loneliness,” for a couple of minutes earlier tonight.

It wasn’t triggered by any memories or reminisces on childhood life, either. Just my adult self.

A friend of mine, a veteran of the newspaper biz himself, once wrote a column about being older and single, and it got results. Of course, he was in a metropolitan area when he wrote that!

Nonetheless, the idea is percolating in my head — I may continue to mull it over.
