A Moment of Solitude
If Einstein was right that "The monotony and solitude of a quiet life stimulates the creative mind," why don’t more of us seek it out?
Sure, we all say we want a little “me time” or want to “get away from it all” but how often do we really spend time alone and quiet. Not just “unplugged” - an adjective that Einsten, Emerson and Thoreau never had to deal with - but truly engaged in a state of being by oneself.
Today, where we live, an exploration of solitude. From those who enter it as a religious vow, to those who choose the life of the hermit, to some who find themselves in isolation against their will.
