Outer and inner landscapes merge, pebbles and twigs may become scarecrow friends, and demons may emerge or preside anywhere. Grief and loss may precipitate loneliness. As she lived peerless, So her dead likeness, I do well believe, Excels whatever yet you looked upon Or hand of man hath done. Therefore I keep it Lonely, apart. But here it is. Prepare To see the life as lively mocked as ever Still sleep mocked death.
Perhaps all of this urges us to keep in touch.
The Lonely Dragon
It becomes all too easy to let friends slip away, especially as time, task, and distance intercede. Yet, this is clearly a mistake. No matter what solace we may take from other quarters, we remain dependent on other people. Isolating ourselves may be an important part of our lives, but cutting ourselves off, whether individually or communally, can be fatal in so many ways.

We can be lonely for many reasons, or sometimes without seeming reason. We may be as lonely in a crowd, or with well meaning friends and family, as by ourselves.
Outdoor sustenance is wonderful. Yet, for all that, it is the people and the communities in our lives we tend to miss the most when they have gone. They forever leave an emptiness, no matter how fierce the dragon may be. Once the little boy grows up and moves on, Puff the magic dragon cannot bear it. It will almost certainly end anyway, but there appear to be two potential roads that one may take. Bon voyage or the empty house. Although they may be different flavours, one still seems infinitely more appealing.
