Do not suffer from loneliness.
It’s all the people making you lonely.
Pick a spot on the horizon and head straight for it.
Weave your way through a stand of Redwoods.
Kayak an island chain.
Peer over your toes at the edge of a canyon.
Go to your favorite place.
Again, and again.
This is what you need to do.
Not just because it fuels your independence,
But because it reminds you you’re a part of something bigger.
And although it may not occur to the baffled onlookers
who can’t take their eyes off
your smiling mud-covered wired-up insane self,
it will occur to you.
You aren’t the one who’s lonely.
