You can lay next to someone every night and still be lonely
I woke up this morning and found a note that I wrote while I was half asleep last night. In my handwritten nocturnal scrawl it said only this:
You can lay next to someone every night and still be lonely.
I think I wrote that in response to a conversation I had with a woman yesterday who asked if I was lonely. That’s a tough question for me to answer when I don’t know the questioner very well. What I mean by that is that I don’t want to say to them, “Meditation is very important to me,” or, “What I do during the night is very important to me.” Actually, I don’t mind telling them about the meditation part, a lot of people meditate these days. It’s just the OBEs and everything else that happens at night that I don’t want to discuss.
I have to run to a doctor’s appointment now, so I’m going to rush this ending, but I just want to note that the “You can lay next to someone every night and still be lonely” quote is not just from my own experience, but from honest conversations I’ve had with other people (mostly woman, and two men).
And with that I must take my leave of you. LLAP.
