    I like staring at the sky too @Sunrise09 :) I enjoy cloud watching, and using my imagination to see what the clouds remind me of. Did you do that? 

    I also like to look at the sky at night. I can't always see the stars, but it's nice when you can see them!

    Some years ago I used to stay in quite a bit and enjoy the inclement weather as I knew most other people would be forced to stay in too. It made me feel better about my self imposed prison regime. 

    For some reason I no longer feel that way but I still enjoy a wet or snowy day indoors, just me, a hot water bottle and a mug of hot tea or coffee.

    I`ve never done that on land, but I used to do that on the flight deck of a couple of frigates I was on when we were in the warmer regions (and calm seas).  There`s something incredibly relaxing about lying on your back, gazing at thousands, if not millions, of twinkling little objects in the sky while listening to the soft noises of a warship moving through the water.   Those conditions allowed satellites to be seen - moving slowly across the sky like a moving star.

    The best night sky I’ve seen was on one holiday in Scotland, West Highlands, it was beautiful, it seemed there was more stars than sky. I’ll never forget it.

    Would you feel comfortable sharing a little more about why you lock yourself away, the pain you're experiencing, and why you're scared to find yourself @Sunrise09? You don't have to share anything you don't want to, but I can sense you're going through a tough time at the moment.

    Not sharing anything with anyone sounds like a very difficult way to live, Pam. I'm very sorry to hear you have to go through that. It sounds like you probably haven't, but I was just wondering if you've ever sought support with what happened with your family?
