Loneliness is a complex problem of epidemic proportions, affecting millions from all walks of life.

I absolutely agree with you about doodling and how it sustains the present to a point, however it is incredibly difficult in my case for my thinking to remain in the present because the past interferes all to often. Perhaps I am too heightened or simply not disciplined enough to separate the two. Perhaps my inner turmoil has been too evasive to cope with mindfulness. I have only just begun to be in touch with my feelings. Perhaps someone could shed more light on this.
I love to draw or paint, use clay or write about my thoughts. My mind is all too willing to wander and stray to the dark places I would rather forget. I find myself making myself aware of that and do try to bring myself back to the here and now. It's a very difficult thing in my case to achieve.
I have made note of the websites. Thank you!
