Anne Morrow Lindbergh on solitude

Tuesday, September 01, 2009
It is a difficult
lesson to learn today,
to leave one's friends
and family and deliberately
practise the art of solitude
for an hour or a day
or a week.
For me, the break
is most difficult ...

And yet, once it is done,
I find there is a quality
to being alone that is
incredibly precious.

Life rushes back into the void,
more vivid,
fuller than before!
Anne Morrow Lindbergh
