How long will one live?

Will one be rich or poor?

What do others think of one?

When will one find enlightenment?

What does one really think & feel?

Who is one?

Is one the only one?


So many questions asked by one,

Will one always be just one?

Are we all just in essence one?

When one speaks, who listens, all or one?

                                                                         …or none…?

About the only ones who listen to me anymore are my dogs, and they're extremely good listeners.

Brings to mind the song lyrics from Aimee Mann ...

One is the loneliest number
That you'll ever do
Two can be as bad as one
It's the loneliest number since the number one

ERGO ... I surmise that 'NONE' is even Lonelier than ONE!
