This is a new season of aloneness. Extreme aloneness. It's because everyone is bundled against the cold and the only signs of inhabitants on my street are the cars returning from a days work somewhere. This is what is known as cabin fever. And yet, because we have internet and facebook, there is always a sense of connection. Where I lived in CA, the homes were far away from the street and up on a ridge. I got used to the solitude. I took solace in the form of long, rugged walks with the dogs in the foothills. Great days.
