going it alone

would you ever go to the movie's by yourself? would you ever go to a museum by yourself? would you ever dine solo at a sit down restaurant? i have done all of these things alone. in new york city there are so many people everywhere that even when you are by yourself you aren't really alone. though i am far from being a loner, i actually like the pleasure of my own company .
when my father passed away i realized that in addition to ceasing to be a father he ceased being a husband. having never been married i don't usually think about what would be like to not be married anymore due to a spouse passing on.
as much as i enjoy being alone and being able to do what i want when i want , i see the value of sharing one's life with a spouse no matter how long or short that joined life might last. life is meant to be shared with others, even when its "just" with good friends. its is important to be able to be comfortable alone. sometimes one gets to choose to be alone, other times its imposed upon a person due to the cycle of life.
