An Introvert in an Extrovert World


Are you an introvert?  Do you find your energy renewed in solitude?  I am an introvert with learned extrovert capabilities, as my daughter defined it. Life necessitates participation.  Like the picture above, my world is not confined to one emotional location.  There are several paths I choose to walk but the word “private” is on the gate.  Companionship tends to be by invitation–not because I do not value friends.  Only because my ability to  be the kind of friend they deserve is limited by the number of paths I have the energy to travel.  As we enter 2017, thank you dear friends for walking paths with me.  I do not take your presence for granted.
