365, Day 154: Social Landscapes

365, Day 154

There’s a party tonight and I’m crying because I have to go.

Well, I don’t have to go. And partly I want to go, at least in theory. People I know will be there, people I like. And people I don’t know will be there and, in this particular home where the party will occur, I have always met with interesting people. Plus, there will be music. Live music with really talented musicians. And perhaps spontaneous dancing.

But still.

I love looking out at the landscape. This kind of landscape. Social landscapes I’m not all that good with. Or at least, I’m not as comfortable with them. It’s not the viewing so much as the being part of, the interacting. The engaging with. I’m more comfortable with trees and birds and clouds than people.
