Confessions of a Recluse

  In an attempt to be open, I confess I’m a recluse.  It isn’t because I’m afraid to talk to people, or unsure of how to navigate the waters of society.  It’s for the simple fact I enjoy my own company and use my alone time to recharge my batteries.  Some people can recharge their batteries...
