And left me alone.
Alone in limbo
Belonging no where.
I am a refugee
Looking for my missing soul….
On a deserted stretch of beach
I slowly walk..alone.
Loneliness escapes me
With the elements I am home.
I am one with the Earth,
The Sea and the Sky.
Linked by unseen fibers
I do not question why.
A connection is what I feel,
I sense and I believe.
As I hear my name,
By the waves and ocean breeze.
The music of the sea
Is calling me home
Peacefully I walk along
The shores of home, alone.
“But day by day, as I dwelled with my aloneness, my loneliness faded, and my life as
the sole creator of myself began.” ~Richard Bode; Beachcombing At Miramar
The above quote is taken from one of my favorite books, Beachcombing At Miramar; The Quest
For An Authentic Life. I came upon this book at our little island library shortly after moving here.
The book touched me in such a way, that I had to immediately purchase a copy of my own. Needless
to say, a good portion of it is now highlighted in bright yellow. So many of the quotes and passages
spoke to me, still do.
I embrace my aloneness. I’m often asked, why do I spend so much time alone. I don’t see it so much
as being alone as being present with myself. I’m comfortable in my own company. I try to be out in
nature as much as possible, and when I am, I’m never lonely, instead I’m content. Does that mean
I don’t enjoy hanging out with friends, not at all. A good laugh with some close friends is just as much
needed ‘therapy’ as spending time alone with one’s thoughts. I just happen to be more of a loner, and
very happy to be so.
