When given a choice between a social gathering & quiet time.....the answer for me is always easy. It is not that I don't enjoy contacts with friends and such, but I prefer those times to be one on one or in very small groups. Conversations can be deeper, more meaningful. I do thrive on alone time, time when I can reboot in the sanctuary of my farm. I have learned to be right with that....it is just in my nature. So I feel fortunate that this time in my life has afforded me with the chance to have wide open space around me, a porch or deck to seek reprieve on, land to dig my hands into, and kinfolk & friends that understand.
How about you?
