Where is your favorite place to spend time alone? How does that place provide what you need?
Either my bedroom or driving.
Bedroom, I can relax in my adjustable bed, reading, play guitar, computer time or watch tv. Many times, go to sleep / sleep early.
Driving relaxes me....I guess it's the control of my environment ( in the vehicle, not out) and the pedals and switches that relaxes me
There's a hiking trail near here that leads to several overlooks of the area. The physical exercise and beautiful views manage to take me out of my head for a while. Otherwise, I like to get in my car, put some tunes in the CD player (type of music depends on my mood, ranging from old-timey mountain music to Dylan to hard-core metal), and drive the back roads. Has to be the back roads because the interstate just further tenses me up
Wandering the streets of Manhattan. There is something wonderful about being completely surrounded by everything, but at the same time being completely anonymous and alone in the crowd.
I'm just another object, seen but not noticed - just like everyone else around me. And then you never know when adventure will find you!
I don't mind being Alone alone, but that feels too much like moody brooding for me - need activities!
