I managed to get my hands on a copy of Hidden Immigrants by Linda Bell.  Just leafing through it I came upon this paragraph.  It describes me at the moment.  Working away.


Of Careers and Goals


I basically left home when I was 16 by going to boarding school.  From a very young age I traveled a lot by myself.  That was good.  But it prepared me to deal with loneliness too, and do things on my own.  But that can be good.  For instance, writing a book is a very lonely experience.
