The past several weeks have been so full of visits, GA, and visitors that I have had blessed little solitude. I have only blogged once in the past week and that, you'll recall, was about being with people and in idleness. I'm not complaining, far from it, because I've enjoyed all the time spent since June 15, which was when I went to Reno for my son's wedding. But hot on the heels of that came General Assembly for several days, a Fourth of July visit to Moses Lake for most of six days, and coming home at the end of that time with my sister and her husband in tow. Company, company, company-----either hosting it or being it.
My Myers-Briggs type is ENFJ and sometimes, like now, I question the E. I do love being with people; I get energy from being with them, and yet there's a threshhold in there somewhere that I cross and find myself frantic for some extended time alone, doing things MY way, not somebody else's. It's probably one reason I've never remarried. I'm almost never lonely, even when I've been alone for quite awhile. My own company isn't exactly scintillating, but it's not bad and I can always go find someone to spend time with.
My sister and her husband have just gone down the long driveway toward home and I am alone with the cats, the trees, the birds, and the laundry, and I am content.
More later, perhaps.
