I really like my time alone but rarely get it. Sometimes my own mind cannot figure out how to get quiet.
I do get periods of sincere solitude. Happily these times do indeed bring upon clarity. Other times solitude just gives me more time to steam about a problem. While other times I find myself watching trash T.V. – ugh!
Perhaps we don’t always want quiet because if we listen carefully we might hear something we are afraid of, the truth.
