Until that rainy Sunday at the movies 31 years ago, for me, companionship had been a mandate for life’s good times. After Orca, it became a choice. My trip to the theater helped me to distinguish between loneliness (experienced by default), and solitude (choosing when and how to enjoy my own company), as I began a journey of engaging the world on my own terms.

The week before the marathon, sleep well. If normally you “get by” with five hours but require seven, make sure you get seven every night.

Though Florida had never been on my radar, only minutes in Sarasota I knew I’d found home.
