|A Cottage by the Sea||
The way in which one handles this absolute aloneness is the way in which one grows up, the great psychic journey of everyman.
Learning, thinking, innovation, and maintaining contact with one’s own inner world are all facilitated by solitude.
When we speak of hospitality we are always addressing issues of inclusion and exclusion.
Fr. Daniel Homan & Lonni Collins Pratt
Just as silence is vital to make solitude real, so is solitude needed to make the discipline of silence complete.
