I’ll never be a recluse but, as I age, I appreciate quiet, contemplative time in a way I never did in my youth. I also need and desire fewer social contacts, choosing the quality of my acquaintances over the quantity. And, I am less tolerant of fools of which there seems to be a growing abundance.

Enjoyed your post immensely, Jeff.
