The word always reminds me of Gray and Elegy and in my mind it is followed automatically by ‘vales’ and I see picturesque pictures of picturesque valleys.
However, the word does mean isolated.
I wonder how my day is going to be tomorrow. I will be alone.
Wing and David have been gone far too long. Natalie and Sebastian have been gone almost as long. Angus has only been gone a week and won’t be back for 9 days more. Kasia just left for her birthday. Thomas has an auntie in town tomorrow and will be away all day. Megan is busy.
I probably won’t bother going to brunch. Maybe not even to dinner. I will hopefully begin revision for exams besides French, rather than twiddle my thumbs and squander the day away on Star Trek.
This is interesting, because I hadn’t before realised how much I look forward to interaction and how integral it seems to have become, in this hall life. Living in a flat is almost unimaginable at this point.
