I've always been attracted to solitude (don't get me wrong; I enjoy being with others as well). It gives me some space for my reflections that accompany the plot of my life and reinforce its meaning. I like allowing my thoughts to percolate through my brain, the thoughts that I have long after I've assimilated 'the plot'. That is (another) why I've been travelling on my own since I was very young; that is why I'm very careful about not invading anyone's space (I just assume everyone needs their 'margin'). I've never felt the need to explain this to anyone, but, a few days ago, I met someone who truly wanted to know and I didn't feel like justifying anything at the time. I wasn't trying to be rude or anything; I just felt like silence. So here it is, my explanation, even if it never reaches its intended audience.
Oh, and I absolutely love how the colours of this portrait match the colours of 'my song' video (you won't know what I'm on about if you're on mobile, though). Just look to the right. Isn't it wonderful? Of course, it is!
