I just got Marina Keegan’s The Opposite of Loneliness out of the library. It’s a collection of essays and short stories. The title piece was published by the Yale Daily News right before commencement in 2012; Keegan sadly died in a car accident five days after graduation.
The article is moving and well written.
We don’t have a word for the opposite of loneliness, but if we did, I could say that’s what I want in life. What I’m grateful and thankful to have found at Yale, and what I’m scared of losing when we wake up tomorrow and leave this place.
