quiet

when there are too many people - i withdraw.. when i can't escape, i become a fixture and observe.. when even observing is draining, i detach and drift..

and then i lose myself out the window.. i watch a great blue heron in the rain.. watch as it coils its neck and lets loose like a spring, coming back with a fish from the pond.. it stretches its enormous wings and shakes off the rain.. i watch long enough to see it pluck a good many fish.. all the people talking at once just becomes a humming din..

and when i finally turn around, everyone has become silent and is watching out the window now too..

I'm much the same way, Sis!
I never feel lonely, when I'm alone.....
Small talk, is just that........IMHO......

interesting shot I love the angle it gives a feeling of silence and solitude, very cool.
