A concert should make you feel enriched, a mall depressed. Being around crowds of people where you feel alienated can make you feel isolated and perhaps lonely. But I never feel lonely in nature. I go to a remote beach nearly every day and paddle or surf among dolphins. Yes I see dolphins nearly every day on this island. It is like having a lot of beautiful pets. Sometimes I am alone, sometimes there are a few other people there, never am I lonely. When I cross paths with someone we always say hello and often stop and chat. Today I came within 2 feet of a pod of dolphins while riding some fun little waves. I gave a surfer who had paddle to the island a ride back on my boat. When people are surrounded by beauty they become warm, accepting and good humored. Nature at its purest is far more intimate than impersonal crowds of humans. Try finding a beautiful park with extraordinary wildlife. Listen to the sounds of nature, tune in to your surroundings and you will realize, only people make you feel lonely but all the other living creatures make you feel grounded and Mother Nature always makes you feel loved.
