It is a 17 degree cold, frozen, ice covered mess outside and I have lost a good friend. Sort of describes how I feel right now, for I have lost a close friend. He hasn’t died, just shut himself off to me and opened himself up to another. He says he doesn’t have to justify what he’s doing so I guess that’s the end of that. I will miss him, for he has been very kind to me in many ways, when he doesn’t shut himself off. I’ve lived on my own for the past 23 years. I know how to be alone. I have a PhD in alone. I’m working on another in lonely. My nature is of an extrovert that loves to be around people for only so long then I need to come home to my cave and re-charge. I think I’m ready to have someone to come home to in our cave. It’s sad my friend and I won’t be doing that together. He’s had one foot in my cave and the rest of himself in cyberspace caves looking for another.Ouch. Time to move on. My sadness today is great.
