And I got interested in the phenomenon, and concerned about the social problem of being alone and also isolated. So when I finished, I started thinking about a next project that would continue the theme, and I got funding from the Robert Wood Johnson Foundation to do a bigger follow up study on living alone and social isolation in American life.
