Adventure...I could bring a volleyball for company. It worked for Tom Hanks and Wilson.

How would you prefer to spend time on a deserted island:
Romantic
Adventurous
Lonely

I'm not greedy...I just want it all;)!

All that time on the island and Tom didn't teach Wilson to swim...

Probably adventurous but it may get lonely after awhile...

Isn't loneliness really just a state of mind and how comfortable you are with yourself?

(Not sure if I should be admitting to this, or not - everyone may vote to have me committed...) Whether real and/or imagined - everything, for me, has an "existence" - an energy which I perceive as a personaility of sorts. Whether it's a rock or tree or volleyball (ie: Wilson) or whatever, I relate on some level. Being alone has, but being lonely has not ever really been part of life's equation for me. If someone isn't there, something else is and it becomes part of my world. (Part of being an only child thing, I'm sure.)

I like Matt's pirate take on it. I'd probably bonkers by the time someone found me - I just wouldn't care - I'd be into the adventure (Arrrrrggggghhh!)

I still want to know - if it's deserted, who's really there?

I have always taken pride in saying, "if I ever get divorced, I will never remarry, I dont need anyone especially a man..."...that is still true but I felt lonely for the first time in a long long time when my husband went to Thailand. He has gone away before for longer periods but it was the thought of him being so far away that made me feel lonely. I was surprised and I told him just to hear him reply..."No you dont, quit making s* up?" WHAT??? And here I was trying to be nice and romantic (which I am rarely ever that). Anyway, it was nice to feel that I needed him in my life so when I think of loneliness I think of not having him around...

Now, if I were surrounded by animals and Joz's little fawn, I dont think I would be lonely at all...I like "energies" that can "speak" to me...as much as I love nature and the beautifulness of an island surrounded by the infinite sight of the ocean...

PS Isa, we wont commit you just yet...I think there is more than one person that feels the same way (me included...maybe they will have us comitted together)

Cool! Then for sure we won't have a chance to get lonely. Do you think the deserted island or the institution will have electricity for the blender??? Wilson likes a good margarita now and again...
