Thanks AJ .. a beautiful sentiment .. especially the last two lines .. I'd rather be me .. and with you .. individual me - different me .. and with so many friends and family .. exactly - cheers Hilary

How beautiful, so lovely, AJ.

I agree with the sentiment of your fourth line - especially because I know that lonely is more likely to occur within a crowd of conventionals and not very often when with the like-minded.

Wow. That was beautiful and heartfelt, AJ. I'd rather be lonely than conventional! But not too lonely.
