How to exist somewhere between the cave and the surface

There are times in life when one must face their true self. I am a cave dweller, one who prefers low light, minimal maintenance, and spaces shared by few. Thanks to the miracle of technology I can reach out through space and time without saying a word…my fingers do the talking…

However, since moving to California I realize that I enjoy the sun. I anxiously await the weekend days where I can go out and sit with my eyes closed, enjoying the radiance. I have a pang of depression on perfect sunning days when I have to go to work in an office away from home instead.

Yet I run back to the darkness of my cave when needed and truly could not imagine being a permanent surface dweller. Is there something in between? How does one balance this juxtaposition?
