I don't ask that any more. I find that ‘WHY' is a question that can never be answered. Every child knows that, and naively asks the question that each answer brings up. There is a chain of causality that apparently is none of our business.
Or maybe the problem is in the question, that we assume that there is an original cause. We just grow out of this earth and spend some time, like leaves come out of the tree. Why? Why tree in the first place? I once wrote that the ultimate question cannot be asked, and the answer to that question is silence. That was one of my more poetic moments.
I feel lonely, too. We all do, I guess. Maybe we have been conditioned to expect something that just isn't there, and of frustration of not being able to capture that which cannot be captured we do not notice what is there for us.
