Dear Solitude, How about the thrills? Thrills that only another presence, another human-being can give you. Thrills caused by excitement, sexual or not, anticipation, fear, admiration, respect, competition. Thrills that makes you want to go beyond yourself. Can you provide those to me? If you can, please do, because then, I will be less lonely. Or let me rephrase, I will be missing people less, because indeed, people are a terrible thing to miss. It's almost saying that you miss taking out the garbage. (assuming it's something you don't like to do in the first place). Can you be thrilling?
