to do something alone
"Andy nobody in our gan digs movies and books the way I do. For a while there, I thought I was the only person in the world that did. So I loned it."
-The Outsiders, S.E. Hinton
to indulge in loneliness
"who journeyed to Denver, who died in Denver, who came back to Denver & waited in vain, who watched over Denver & brooded & loned in Denver and finally went away to find out the Time, & now Denver is lonesome for her heroes,"
- from "Howl" by Allen Ginsberg
