PostSecret: Missed Connection

Even though I haven't found you yet, I take comfort in knowing you haven't found me either. Be patient.

BYRON: Solitude

There is a pleasure in the pathless woods,
There is a rapture on the lonely shore,
There is society, where none intrudes,
By the deep Sea, and music in its roar
I love not Man the less, but Nature more.

—Lord Byron

Childe Harold’s Pilgrimage, 1812

Solitary Refinement

Being solitary is being alone well: being alone luxuriously immersed in doings of your own choice, aware of the fullness of your won presence rather than of the absence of others. Because solitude is an achievement.

—Alice Koller
