Broom On Window
forioscribe




The broom at first appears normal. But the closer you get, the more abnormal it becomes. This is a visual metaphor of the biographical fact that quite often the more people learn about me, the closer they come, the less they like me.

Why?

After a lot of thought I’ve decided it’s either because I want to keep everyone at a distance, or that I’m just basically hard-wired to be an unlikable guy.

The older I get, the more I lean toward the latter interpretation.

Now fuck off. All of ya!

Re: Solitude doesn't mean lonely

i've always been a cat person, largely because I admire their self-sufficiency and refusal to be bossed around. I'd probably have one now, were it not for my landlord forbidding pets.

You're among the very few who think so!

I, too, live alone, by choice.

If I feel the need to talk, I go to town. I can't go anywhere in the area without interacting with former students or their relatives. But most of the time, I'm fine for long stretches of time, with my solitude.

(Yes, retirement was excellent stress relief!)
