a lifetime and then some

“I am lonely, yet not everybody will do. I don’t know why, 
some people fill the gaps and others emphasize my loneliness.”
Anaïs Nin

 I am certain that I am not alone in feeling the ebb and flow of these feelings. 

Community and alienation. 

Intimacy and isolation. 

It seems it will take a lifetime, and then some, to figure this out.

No, you are not alone.
Everybody's got some loneliness.
Anais and Bob both found a way to express theirs.
The rest of us will spend our lives trying.
