This was just shared on one of my online forum groups. It transported me, it reminded me so beautifully why my life -works- now, and why my relationship works. I love my alone time. My husband just lets me "be" whenever I need it (which is most of the time). To all my friends out there who have a little of the hermit in them, you will understand this immediately. To my beloveds who haven't discovered the marvelous "Alone"... investigate it; it's beyond compare.
