I Want To Be Left Alone….

I want to be left alone...

In the movie Grand Hotel, Greta Garbo’s character,  Grusinskaya speaks those famous lines, “I want to be alone.”  Later Garbo explained that what she (and her character) meant was she wanted to be left alone.  There is a difference….

The  choice to be alone…..precious, but not easily understood.
