I beg your pardon…

Being alone is a treasure because I find compassion, patience and simplicity.

Yielding to a discovery process I uncover much and learn even more about my interests and pursuits.

Yet, unless society receives a return for itself, this endeavor ma appear fruitless and a waste of time, energy and resources.

Yet, it is fascinating to look at the creative mind.

The closer solitude is examined the muddier the water appears to be.

For example, not all mothers are blamed when their child does not form an attachment.

In some cases it is considered a disease like Autism.

In many instances of solitude the artiest, or creative person will seek out solitude to find authenticity.

Again, this is difficult for society, even the immediate family and friends who may find the creative person aloof or preoccupied with their work and less with their relationship to others.

But it is easy to recognize the outcomes as valuable:  creativity, authenticity, truth, science, art, philosophy, etc.
