All Alone in the Woods

I'm sitting here all alone on a log, not even a Mome Rath to amuse me. It's rare to find myself alone these days. I'm kind of sad and melancholy. As much as I struggle with the chaos of the mundane, I guess I rather miss all the noise.

I think I'll curl up with 8 pillows and get some sleep and try not to wonder where all of the silence is coming from.

I had the SAME damned reaction being on my own for 3 nites. The silence was deafening, and I found myself actually contemplating going out to a dance club just to surround myself with noise and distraction. I went nightswimming instead, did laundry, napped and read.

You're right, tho': when you're more or less surrounded by people 24/7, the sudden ABSENCE of them makes you feel like you've been plunked down in da' middle of a ghost town. It's kinda NICE, but it also kinda messes wid' yo' head...
