Afraid Of Being Lonely

It's that one line in that old interview that Dan Rather did with Merle Haggard. Rather asks what keeps him out on the road, working all the time, and Merle replies, "I'm afraid of being lonely."

He might have saved me years of meditation, hours squinting at some self-help book and maybe a marriage or two.

I've never really known what I write about. Merle Haggard knew what we all write about.

  1. You know, Ronny, I don't read your blog as often as I probably ought to.

    Yet every time I pop in your words are like a much needed sea breeze, reminding me that I am not alone in the problems I'm facing. That we all stare down that deep, dark hole at some point and we all wonder if we can handle what we see staring back.

    Thank you.
