An evening alone

Laundry is tumbling dry and I've declined a social invitation for the evening. With work each Sunday, my Saturday evenings are shorter than most. Probably untrue, if I'm honest– I'm unlikely to sleep earlier than any other night. It'd be more true to admit that the prospect of not being able to enter the laughter of my friends sounds harder than an evening alone.

In stories with an ensemble cast, particularly adventures, there's a section in the middle when the characters' paths diverge. Splitting into smaller groups or striking out alone, they often face trials that forge and test character, taking steps that seem separate but often contribute and connect to the larger story. Perhaps this is that season.

Whatever the case, I know I'm not alone. Sometimes that makes it easier.
