Relaxing into solitude

I had reason to glance at an entry here from eight months ago, in which I confessed to resentment about being left alone on my birthday by my friends.

By way of contrast, recently I spent Thanksgiving, Christmas and New Years at home alone; and it felt perfectly fine. I received no Christmas gifts either, and that felt fine too.

Somehow, something interior shifted between May and November. I think that's a good thing.
