Alone, Not Lonely

gazebo

I’m an introverted person. That doesn’t mean I don’t like people or enjoy being around them. Social interaction drains my psychic batteries, though, and I need some time alone to recharge. One way I get that time is sitting in the gazebo at the marina while my husband is out on the lake. You can just make out his sailboat in the distance, above the chair. I love the gazebo, with comfy chairs, screening to keep out the bugs but let in the breeze, and a view of the bay. Mostly I love that I have it all to myself. I read, write, catch up on work, or just sip iced tea and watch the sky and the water. I wish everyone else the joy of such a place to go to, where the soul can unfold.
