    I live in that solitude which is painful in youth, but delicious in the years of maturity.

    Saint John the Evangelist lived in solitude.

    What would you say you've learned from your experience? If you'd care to share with us.

    I took the Einstein quote to be a reflection of Crab's personal journey. Otherwise what's the point of posting a mere quote like that?

    But have they had an answer yet? :tongue3:

    (probably not since there's a reason to ask the question again. )

    You are correct, I am, and have been at that point of loving solitude.

    Sometimes I post quotations that do reflect where I am in life, or something I feel strongly. Other times I post them simply because I find them interesting and to reflect on. On rare occasions I will post a quote just to see how others respond to it.

    I love proverbs both Biblical and from various cultures. Proverbs are often truths wrapped in small packages of words. I love that.

    Being in solitude gives me time to pray, to think, to meditate on God.

    I am never alone when I am alone. I am most alone when I am in a crowd or a noisy party.

    As I have gotten older I find I watch less and less TV. I know I have changed and it seems to me that TV has changed and not for the better. I cannot fathom why some programs are popular, especially, the so called, reality shows.

    I love what I call minute vacations. Let's say I am outside mowing the yard. I hear a flock of Canadian geese flying over, so I stop and watch and reflect on the amazing works God did in creating such a beautiful sight. Or presently I will stop and just watch a beautifully colored tree and marvel as His handiwork.

    I am not sure if this answers your question. My answer is a quick one. Maybe I'll reflect on this a bit.

    Thank you for your sincere and honest response to my question. :) I too love proverbs. The scripture as well as those afforded in other cultures.

    Very often great things can be gleaned from a few simple words shared as someone elses thoughts(quote).

    Thank you again. God Bless.
