Creature comfort

Lizard hiker

I’m a bit of a loner. I have a few close friends I enjoy spending time with, but being by myself is not something I avoid.

I like being able to make plans without stressing about someone else’s preferences. Having my own schedule, or not having one at all, makes being spontaneous much easier.

That’s why I usually take my weekly photo hikes alone. I don’t have to consider whether someone else is bored, or tired. I can go where I want, when I want, for as long as I want.

I can hike at my pace, and not worry about lagging behind or pulling ahead of someone else.

Still, I’m not totally alone. On each hike, I find at least one sidekick. A critter of some kind that lets me know that despite my claims of solitude, I’m actually surrounded by all sorts of companions.

  1. I am very social, but the older I get the more I am becoming like you. I like being ALONE, I enjoy reading or watching a movie, even if the boys are with next to me (and we’re watching HARRY POTTER AGAIN..heh) I feel better like that than trying to make conversation or being around other people.

    I almost feel “free-er” because of it these days.
