Recommended Posts

Interesting book review about how the number one public health problem today is loneliness. This, in combination with another study, that 29% are senior "orphans" in Canada and the U.S.A. We have to work on this.

Phillip Slater's book  "The Pursuit of Loneliness" is a good read if you are interested in books that dissect American culture.

I still find it easier to have a friendly conversation with a total stranger in Mexico than in the USA.

Definitely! Down here you have to work at being alone even when you want to be.
