I'm loving the idea of your creativity - especially upcycling.

I feel a bit guilty about feeling so happy and contented with my lot (though it be rather humble compared to some, still, I have myriad blessings for which to be grateful) and agree - being alone is not synonymous with loneliness. I refer back to Big John's recent comments on another thread about animism, and the loving ties I feel for the natural world. I feel deeply sorry for those not so well equipped for being alone.

      We are never alone
    as we talk to the stone

       We are never alone
        as we talk to a tree

        We are never alone
   as we talk to the Universe.

           We are blessed
               by having
                so many
               to talk to.



      Happiness is the result of an enlightened mind
     whereas suffering is caused by a distorted mind.
