We seem so frightened today of being alone

“We seem so frightened today of being alone
that we never let it happen. Even if family, friends
and movies should fail, there is still the radio
or the television to fill up the void. . . .

Now, instead of planting our solitude with our own dream blossoms,
we choke the space with continuous music,
chatter and companionship to which
we do not even listen.
It is simply there to fill the vacuum.
When the noise stops there is no
inner music to take its place.
We must re-learn to be alone.”

~Anne Morrow Lindbergh
