Being solitary is being alone well: being alone luxuriously immersed in doings of your own choice, aware of the fullness of your won presence rather than of the absence of others. Because solitude is an achievement.
Everything we do is for the purpose of altering consciousness. We form friendships so that we can feel certain emotions, like love, and avoid others, like loneliness. We eat specific foods to enjoy their fleeting presence on our tongues. We read for the pleasure of thinking another person's thoughts.
How thin and insecure is that little beach of white sand we call consciousness.

No, I never saw an angel, but it is irrelevant whether I saw one or not. I feel their presence around me.
The answer is, who you are cannot be defined through thinking or mental labels or definitions, because it's beyond that.

The presence of the Holy Spirit is the keystone of all our hopes.
John Nelson Darby
Love means that everything is right with the world. Love and only love.

W. E. B. Du Bois
The willow which bends to the tempest, often escapes better than the oak which resists it; and so in great calamities, it sometimes happens that light and frivolous spirits recover their elasticity and presence of mind sooner than those of a loftier character.

Presence is more than just being there.
The objectification of females is not a good thing! Not every rapper does this, but when the lyrics focus solely on the strip club, 'poppin' bottles' and how many girls they can 'tap,' it distorts what kids are learning. I think if there was more of a female presence in hip hop we could break up the monotony. It's all about balance.
We convince by our presence.
Your children need your presence more than your presents.
