"...just being very empty..."

She selects an oak tree as a metaphor. She feels that an oak tree is the symbol of her life, bending way over, and then straightening up again. Symbolically she states that her life encountered some harsh blowing wind that has bent her over, but when the wind ceases, she stands up again.
She is a retired 77 year old payroll officer. She explains, "It is particularl lonely when going to some place, like a party or a wedding, seeing couples and you are alone." She admits, "It is the most difficult part of being alone." She delves into this feeling of "just being very empty" and she admits loneliness exists in her life.
