In solitude the mind gains strength and learns to lean upon itself.
These are quiet days for me. They're not quiet in the sense that not much is going on...there is plenty to do and even more to think about. So much of my work, though, is accomplished at home, in solitude.
Sometimes my spirit rebels against the quiet...the stillness. Sometimes I want to fill all the empty spaces with activity and excitement... maybe even a little retail therapy ;-) But when I lean in and allow the solitude to do its work, parts of me that beg to be nurtured timidly speak up and the conversation begins.
