    My cold, snide, intellectual life is just a veneer, behind which lies the plywood of loneliness.

    I've noticed an ebb and flow in my life. Generally in about ten year periods.

    The book Passages by Gail Sheehy talks about the various phases a person goes through and the influencing factors.

    Yes! The lightbulb just went on. Overwhelmed, not so much exhausted or discontented.

    Well said and agreed. Not a damn thing wrong with introversion unless it manifests in negative ways, like said in the quote.
