Something strange I made time ago

This is just an anecdote, to exemplify some of me.

Some years ago, I really had the need to go out, stay at home really was killing my will, specially a friday or saturday at night (or sunday).

So because I didnt have anyone to go out, I started going downtown alone, drink something alone, then go back at home, the most boring and null thing Ive done.

One time, I was in a row of weeks feeling so alone.

I used to comeback home feeling the need to have some contact with a human being.

When going to home in the bus, I had a woman sitted in the place in front of me, me looking the back of her head.

So I thought, ok, when I d get up Ill touch the back of her shoulder sligjtly with my hand.

The seats have a handdle on the head rest, so I just grab the habddle in a normal way as everyone does, and (while standing), I touch her right shoulder with the knucles, in a casual way, so I did.

Its not an spectacular anecdote, but that was like: imagine feel so alone, to secretely touch someone a bit.

I know how crippy this sounds, quite it is.

This days I got used to spend time alone at home. But I had rough days being alone time ago, still have some bad days todays.

I understand why you did that and why it felt nice. I like to sit in a cafe and sometimes people used to be close, or sitting next to me on a bench, and it was nice. It is like you feel their energy.

I have that similar energy from animals but not as powerful.

A stranger hugged me once for no reason, smiled, and walked off. An old lady.
