Alone - Karen Oliver
She cannot tell anyone what she does when alone. That is the whole point of being alone, getting away from prying, judging eyes. Being alone is being away, from her fears, her need to control everything, from following everyone else’s agenda, Being alone is breathing deeply, safety, peacefulness, ease; soft, shapeless clothes and disappearing into good books. Watching mindless television. Calling old friends. Being alone gives her a break from herself and helps her find her source again, for the next time she gives it all away.
