So it was with some joy that I discovered myself home alone last week one night. I took a nice long, hot bath, I luxuriated in the comfort of my cozy bathrobe, and I had the television all to myself.
Normally we watch television together and can always find things we both enjoy. But when we're alone we both tune in to channels that never get watched together! I know when I'm out the tuner is normally on ESPN. And when I'm alone I tend to hover around HGTV and TLC, with a little Discovery thrown in occasionally.
And sometimes I don't watch TV at all, but spend my evening on the computer or reading. Its quiet and peaceful and I love it.
Solitude is not something I yearn for - I love company and I enjoy having someone at home with me most of the time. But occasional solitude is something to savor.
