The Price of Freedom is Lonliness

24-February-2018

A VERY interesting article in The Atlantic by Julie Beck. Something I think I need to read a couple of times to get the whole picture but one I definitely agree with. Anthony Giddens’ “pure relationship” sounds about right.

A Book of Silence – Sara Maitland

7-January-2018

I have not read this book but I have read this article from the Guardian which gives one an idea of what the book is about. A no holds barred (“bard”) look at life away from modern society, alone with just ones thoughts. Possibly scary stuff. Sara Maitland’s book sounds like it might be an interesting read.

Moving

22-December-2017

I’ve been thinking a lot lately about moving to somewhere more conducive to leading a peaceful life. I know it’s who you are and not where you are that matters but something more conducive to that quiet direction may help. Declutter, so to speak. I have some land in mind which I’m going to see. Stick on a livable container and rent out my current place, using the money from that to live on. 6 years to go until my commitment to society ends. 6 years to plan.

Thoughtful quote

Because emails don’t soak up tears.

As a tribe of one, I move quietly, peacefully, to extinction.

The Road Less Travelled

12-May-2016

“Why do you take the road less travelled?”

“Because it’s the unknown. It’s adventure. It’s challenge. And what of you?”

“I take it because it’s quiet. It’s solitude. It’s peace.”

Alone

26-April-2016

I think it’s best that I remain alone.

Solitude and Mindfullness

17-March-2016

I think this is perhaps where I’m going. What I’m looking for. Not necessarily inner peace, although they seem to suggest the same thing to me. Perhaps they are. That I find inner peace on my own and in contemplation.
I loved the article in Psychology Today “The Call Of Solitude” by Ester Buchholz.

Solitude. One man’s story

Wow! What a great article

Hmmm

I meant something to someone, once.
