Connection and Solitude

Bubbles the Bunny is very outgoing

I tend to be a quiet person - not the life of the party.
When I'm in a group, I listen more than speak.
With close friends, however, I can talk, talk, talk.

Connection is important for my well-being.
However, I'm most at ease in solitude.

Some days I don't feel like going into the cold.
I'd rather read in front of the fire sipping tea...

However, I put on layers and snap into my touring skis.
I start gliding into the forest and in a short while I'm smiling.

When I'm alone, I'm very alert.
I see the tracks of animals and determine if they're old or new.

My skis groan and creak in the cold.
Going downhill, they squeal a high pitched tune.
Sometimes, I laugh out loud at their antics.

We are all so different.
That's what makes life interesting.
Time to connect and time for solitude are my good things today.
