On Solitude

A Writer’s Book of Days (09/05) – Write about dispelling loneliness

British actress Anna Neagle once said, “Solitude is pleasant. Loneliness is not.”

And for me, embracing solitude has been the best panacea for loneliness. Whether it’s losing myself in a good book, walking along through nature, or just watching clouds roll by, I find peace and inspiration in being alone. It’s also one of the best environments for fostering creativity.

Between work and home life, it’s not something I find often these days. Is it possible to feel lonely for solitude?
