    • Thank you. I tend to swing in both directions on this. There are so many things I’ve enjoyed doing during my life that were solitary (for me) in their nature – running, kayaking, biking, scuba (even with a dive buddy, it’s such an internal experience) – but loneliness can be such a draining experience and companionship a priority, more often than not.
