Truth in advertising

“Do not suffer from loneliness.  Go outside.  Go away.  It’s all the people making you lonely.

Pick a spot on the horizon and head straight for it.  Weave your way through a stand of redwoods.  Kayak an island chain.  Peer over your toes at the edge of a canyon.  Go to your favorite place.  Again, and again.

This is what you need to do.  Not just because it fuels your independence.  But because it reminds you you’re a part of something bigger.  And although it may not occur to the baffled onlookers who can’t take their eyes off your smiling mud-covered wired-up insane self, it will occur to you:

You’re not the one who’s lonely.”
