“We seem so frightened today of being alone that we never let it happen. Even if family, friends and movies should fail, there is still the radio or television to fill up the void. Women, who used to complain of loneliness, need never be alone any more…Now instead of planting our solitude with our own dream blossoms, we choke the space with continuous music,¬†chatter¬†and companionship to which we do not even listen. It is a difficult lesson to learn today–to leave one’s friends and family and deliberately practice the art of solitude for an hour or a day or a week.” –Anne Morrow Lindbergh, Gift from the Sea
