Oxford Dictionary defines Alone as meaning...

In certain South African dialects the word for alone simply does not exist. I don't mean "alone" isn't in their language, or that when they are incapable of working english into their languages the way Spanish and Japanese can, I mean it does not exist. The concept does not exist. Everyone in the community interacts with everyone else, everyone is everyone elses responsibility and visa versa. The idea of someone being alone is simply unfathomable.

Can you imagine that? I mean can you actually wrap your mind around that concept.

I can't.

Somehow that is so profound that meh is not worthy to be used in it's presence.



Make a man a fire, he will be warm for a day.
SET a man on fire, he will be warm for a lifetime.
