A single blossom

Surrounded yet set apart

Self-companionship.

Our society does not seem to value the ability to be alone.  We are constantly inundated with the idea that we must always be with someone, either romantically, socially or even in the workplace.  That being alone is a negative state that should be avoided whenever possible.  How unfortunate that we are not supposed to be comfortable with the idea of keeping ourselves company, of learning to enjoy our own thoughts, ideas and feelings without the distractions of others.  Many times, we are in the best company when we are by ourselves.
