The lady who is a nurse said that solitude has brought her more fully in to her personal relationships. This is so true, contrary to popular psychology which believes solitude steers one away from these relationships. Solitude is not a dwelling place. It is a place we visit so we can return home to share what we have found on our visits there. Henri Nouwen is so clear on this in The Way of the Heart. Anthony Storr, Solitude a Return to Self talks about needing to find the capacity to be alone in order to enter into solitude. The piece is good, but lacks guidance on getting to solitude,maybe the book offers it. One truth that rings true is when you stop and dont hear any music its a sure sign you need solitude
