There are days when I just want to be left alone.  I don’t want to talk to anyone.  I want to read or work on a craft project or take a walk or listen to music or just let my mind wander.  I am not angry with anyone in the present time and although I do feel guilty about being self absorbed I still need to have the quiet time alone.

The quiet time gives the kid parts of my brain some space to try to make sense of all of the new things I am learning about the world.

A little peace and silence lets me think about how blessed I am and how far I have come through extremely difficult times.

“Hope” by Langston Hughes

Sometimes when I’m lonely,

don’t know why,

Keep thinkin’ I won’t be lonely

By and by.
