Alone, at peace, the first time in weeks. Irritable, restless, scattered, it should have occured to me why. Social interaction makes me tense, uneasy, nervous. Small doses are fine, a steady stream grates badly. The only alone time has been slumberland, simply not enough. Vacation for all the kids coming to an end feels good and bad. Companionship will be missed, but tranquility welcomed. On the phone, a friend from out of town, checking to make sure I was alright sans legal trouble. After hanging up a conclusion dropped in my lap. I want a girlfriend that is street-smart.
