Chatter in the World

Dark night tonight. I haven't been outside in quite awhile, but from where I'm sitting I don't see any stars. All I see are shadows and faint outlines of trees and shrubs and fences. It's a little odd, feeling like I'm in a cocoon in here, protected from the world outside but, at the same time, cut off from its warmth and humanity.

It's sad, somehow, to sit alone in a semi-dark room, knowing a television is on somewhere deep in the background, not feeling connected to anyone nor anything that cares.

Tonight just feels odd and sad and distant. I don't know why. There's chatter in the world, but I'm not part of it.
