To be solitary when that's what you want & need, is a good thing to be able to achieve, to be solitary always, & to see whatever future there will be as more of the same or worse, as old age eventually creeps in, doesn't make for contentment or any sense of the worth of one's life. As an invisible worker on permanent unsocial hours, I'm in a working environment that's shared, but sectioned off. I'm sounding off here, because this is one of very few conversational human contacts I have now, outside of work, visits to my dementia suffering Mother, a weekly call from my bro, & people in shops, the pubs look like they're never going to open again, this government mandated, semi-permanent house-arrest, has got to change, or it's going to break a lot more people than it has already. I feel up to the immediate challenge, but neither strong in the anticipation of it, nor happy about facing months & especially not years on end, alone 24/7, it's not healthy, nor do I think it's sustainable, not for years anyway..

If I was twenty-something, I would be considering moving to Russia, permanently.
