I was invited to contribute my thoughts
To a podcast on the subject of loneliness
Needing time to process my reply
I didn’t know what to say
Then later someone inquired
Ronald where have you been
And I just smile and said
I’ve been here, didn’t you see me
It’s lonely out here
- Ronald Amanze
Jo Thompson Coon wrote a blog post about the Only Connect! Conference which you can read here.
