I drove to Borders and wove through the Literature section (something about all of those books motivates me to make mine the best it can be). Then, I went home, poured a glass of wine and made some whole wheat spaghetti with broccoli, sun dried tomatoes, pesto, and vodka sauce.
I opened up Microsoft Word and I swear that the blank page seemed excited to see me. It has been so long since we were alone together! I can hear people piling into cars, opening the sun roofs, and cracking open beer cans. I can see summer-dressed girls linking pinkies with their boyfriends. I can feel each individual, going somewhere, doing something, with a set purpose. The entire city seems to be vibrating with human interaction and I am by myself.
And I couldn't be happier.
Do you like being alone? When was the last time you took yourself out on a date?
