Late today due to a mid-week movie night! We crossed the river to attend a movie shown in our friends' barn - up in the loft. The movie was Moon, about a man working on the moon all by himself for a three year contract. I can't really say more because it would give away the whole premise - for those who like Sci/Fi, you might enjoy.
Anyway, the movie got me thinking about being alone for that many years. Personally, I think I'd go bonkers. But there is something to be said for 'alone time'.
Language... has created the word "loneliness" to express the pain of being alone.And it has created the word "solitude" to express the glory of being alone. ~ Paul Tillich
I love to be alone. I never found the companion that was so companionable as solitude. ~ Henry David Thoreau
You cannot be lonely if you like the person you're alone with. ~Wayne Dyer
Cultivate solitude and quiet and a few sincere friends, rather than mob merriment, noise and thousands of nodding acquaintances. ~ William Powell
Could you live in solitude for three years, People of Blogland? Do you take time for 'alone time' throughout your day?
