that I get it. As another said recently, we are alone and solitary, except for the people that we communicate with through the internet. "Writing in solitary rooms that we will never see". Have we let ourselves become too dependent on electronic communication and faraway neighbors? Should we disconnect and re-engage on a more personal level? I'm not sure. I definitely would miss many of my friends in faraway places. I think it also gives us the option of dis-engagment when we tire of the obligation of making polite conversation; when you would rather be doing something else. LoL Don't we all have at least one personal relationship that when we see them coming or get them on the phone, we say to ourselves; "Oh crap! ? BTW welcome back ~ Geezer.

Writing purely for oneself, is the ultimate in defensive posture.

I like that you have left a little room for the reader to draw upon their own interpretation.
Will read more of you.
