The need to escape and be alone. The desire to feel at one with nature and commune with Our Father and not have another soul in sight. Or perhaps to sleep for two weeks straight! Who can relate? Not many perhaps, but often this is me. "Peopled out" is the term bandied around for those times when introverted folks, and I presume some seriously stretched extroverted folks just need to have some time out. I love the way Mierav puts it on her..
