Comments20/04/2016 #12 Cat Gal U.@Pascal Derrien your article touched me, I always think how my grandparents that lived far away from us felt, also how all older people manage to do things without there families when they need help from someone else. I think all countries should pay more attention on this matter, at the end everyone is going to get to that point in life, we should have more empathy.19/04/2016 #5 Qamar Ali Khan@Pascal Derrien! Family structure and traditional values are the main cause either to leave an elderly lonely or surround them with loved ones, caring all the time. At our side, in the East, we have a strong joint-family structure. We take our elders as our mentor, thought-leaders, and our main decision-makers. We never leave them alone or feel them alone. So, if you could undertake a survey about the same thing here, the result would be more than the reverse of what is explored there. Same is the situation with the young generation. Because of the wise and loving company of elders, our young people always are equipped with some solid solutions to any of their problems. A strong family structure is the solution to this problem.19/04/2016 #3 Paul "Pablo" CroubalianSolitude is only welcomed when it is sought out. I love spending days alone in the woods with just my thoughts and a canoe for company, and the occasional pesky racoon.
But, as a writer, I spend much time alone in my home office with two crazy cats. Sometimes, I just need human presence. Then, I move the "office" to a park or coffee shop.
Other times, birdsong is enough, so I work poolside.
There are definite benefits to working my way.
