But it isn’t easy,’ said Pooh. ‘Because Poetry and Hums aren’t things which you get, they’re things which get you. And all you can do is to go where they can find you.
Times like these I hate going on trips for work
I like eating at local hotspots
So that means I look at where the locals go by the number of people
On the patio
Sitting on tables
Then, there’s just me
Still a number
“Party of one”, I squeak at the host
And they tell me to go to the bar
Or to wait fifteen minutes
Maybe the place is too crowded for just one
Would it be better if I had said
“Party of me and my phone?”
Solo never bothered me before
I was fine being independent
I was fine
But now is different
When friends are scattered across continents
When I have to cross oceans or seas or lakes and rivers to see family
I could use some crowd in this tiny table they put me in
That empty seat across from me is jarring
I know someone who would have fit perfectly in it

"The problem, often not discovered until late in life, is that when you look for things in life like love, meaning, motivation, it implies they are sitting behind a tree or under a rock. The most successful people in life recognize, that in life they create their own love, they manufacture their own meaning, they generate their own motivation. For me, I am driven by two main philosophies, know more today about the world than I knew yesterday. And lessen the suffering of others. You’d be surprised how far that gets you."
