      One can be alone and never feel lonely, it’s a question of appreciating the beauty of the surroundings and feeling good with your own company, right?

        It really is. Some people never reach that level which is quite sad…

    I do! 🙂

    My favourite quote of all is this one by Henry David Thoreau: “I have never found a companion that was so companionable as solitude”

        My father- in-law, now a widower, and an inspiration to us in the way he leads his solitary, independent life at 93, passed it on to me 🙂
