Chris hates it when I work nights at the weekend.
He says he hates feeling lonely.
I was thinking about this fact this morning when I was stood in the pouring rain rattling the feed bucket at Sylvia and Irene, as they tip toed their way across the field to stand just ten feet away from me, with their silly marble glass eyes giving it" large."
I spend much of my time alone here in Trelawnyd.
And yet, I can honestly say that, I have never really ever felt lonely.
Now where does that come from?
I have read research that indicate that being a twin actually predisposes a person to
feel loneliness more than others ( for those that don't know I have a twin sister) , but I can honestly say that in my 50 years on this planet, I am lucky enough never to have experienced those dreadful pangs of isolation some people feel every day of their lives.
I put this down to the fact that I was a single man for a long time during my salad days! That was a time when I worked hard, played hard and lived a city kind of life. Days away from work were invariably at a time when others where working, and so solitary pastimes was very much the order of the day.
and I got used to my own company and then there was always another film to watch, another museum to visit and another thing to see...and then I didn't even have a pack of dogs that followed my every move like shadows on a sunny wall.
The companionship of animals can never be under estimated
|Trelawnyd..a wet ghost village today|
Today's awful weather has effectively marooned me at home alone. I am bored by the weather but I don't feel alone, even though I know I will not see a living soul today as Trelawnyd shuts down in the deluge....I won't be bothered by it......
