Lonely Day Musings

Things I’ve considered today:

After four years of uni I get excited by Level 8 of Fisher Library.

I miss my family more than I often acknowledge.

Finished reading Deuteronomy. Didn’t expect it to be that great. I was soundly rebuked each day. It turns out God really cares about my holiness.

I have wonderful friendships. I’m anxious to maintain them beyond uni.

Praying with my bible study group is delightfully natural.

Parliamentary question time used to excite me. Now I wish they’d all just get back to work.

After God and other people, music is still my greatest love.

I am not as good at being alone as I once was.

It is still very good for me to be alone.

Walking in the rain without an umbrella remains one of the greatest joys of my life.

  1. Thanks richard. Your post was much appreciated by a fellow people-loving introvert 🙂 I didn’t realise how much I missed my family til my wedding speech – i was half way through, talking about mum and dad, and just started bawling. That was about 2 1/2 years after i stopped living with them.

    Please tell me more about the photograph. Did you take it? It captures just how lonely and beautiful newtown can be. A place with some light but not yet clarity.

    • Thanks Meredith 🙂

      Yes, the photograph is mine, taken from the window of my living room. I feel like Newtown is a place where there’s lots of activity but little genuine connection.
