"Solitude is the profoundest fact of the human condition. Man is the only being who knows he is alone." [Octavio Paz, The Labyrinth of Solitude]
Thanks to the Cat-Beasts for comfort and welcome beyond the call of duty. It is a relief and a blessing to have somewhere that feels like home, only better.
Still, good to be home. Needed to work some things out, and I could only do it here (without comfort and shoulders upon which to lean).
"Darkness within darkness. The gateway to all understanding." [Tao Te Ching]
