GO! be an island, John.

‘No man is an island, entire of itself; every man is a piece of the continent’  – John Donne

Do you enjoy isolation and time alone or would you rather be busying yourself with others?

Do tell and let me out of here.

    John Donne’s a tw*t.

    Metaphysics – metab*llocks more like.

    What about A.N. Island, from Ireland?

    Not so metaphysical now, eh John?

  2. Jim,
    To me this is a question about introversion versus extroversion which is often misunderstood. Many actors, speakers, comedians and musician are introverts. Introverts are social, but need alone time as being with others is draining of thier energy. On the other side, is that extroverts gain energy by being with others. I’m an introvert.

    Get you out of there. Hmmm…your are smart man, if you got yourself into this mess, you can get yourself out. Remember, never give up. :)

  3. I love and cherish what time alone I can get…which at the present point in time is seriously lacking :) But I need to be sure not to cross that delicate line of isolation…the one in which I completely shut out the world….not in a good way.

  5. I always participate in the “Earth Hour”. This event is a symbol that we should be more aware of our environment and that we should focus on protecting mother earth.
