The Call to Solitude

August 7th, 2010

“At one time or another all of us, I believe, hear the call to solitude. It can come upon us at any moment, under any circumstances — during times of good health or the trials of infirmity, after abandonment or the death of a loved one, in childhood or later in life, in crowds, voluntarily or imposed. Sometimes, it sneaks up on us, much like the persistent ache of a hunger that no sustenance from our fellow human beings can satisfy. Or it beckons as a still, quiet voice from within — the voice of God.”
— Dale Salwak

AB — The voice of the Universe speaks to us when we are alone, when there is no need for shouting.
