|A tiny cottage of solitude!|

It's time to take some time for solitude. For, the holidays will soon be upon us. The seasons come and go....ONE at a time!
I love May Sarton! I connect with her thoughts on solitude! Do YOU?
There is no doubt that solitude is a challenge and to maintain balance within it a precarious business. But I must not forget that, for me, being with people or even with one beloved person for any length of time without solitude is even worse. I lose my center. I feel dispersed, scattered, in pieces. I must have time alone in which to mull over my encounter, and to extract its juice, its essence, to understand what has really happened to me as a consequence of it. ~May Sarton
