And Alone

Loneliness isn’t the physical absence of other people, it’s the sense that you’re not sharing anything that matters with anyone else. If you have lots of people around you – perhaps even a husband or wife, or a family, or a busy workplace – but you don’t share anything that matters with them, then you’ll still be lonely. ~Johann Hari. Book: Lost Connections

Some company, that’s all. But not with one who’s a contrarian. Or just plain dim. The companion must be one to suit ones ideals. One to whom the idea of a verbal challenge is not only understood, but welcomed. Ah yes, the simple things in life that were never promised but are worth all the rest of the promises, kept or broken.
