    I Need My Alone Time

    My alone time is so important to me. It always has been. From childhood I preferred to be somewhat of a loaner. I often felt awkward in groups of people unsure why I would feel inside that I just did not quite fit in. This stuck with me into adulthood. I could play perfectly well...

    I Love Silence

    There is nothing more beautiful than the existence of silence. Did you know that composers say that the silence between the keys is what makes music more beautiful and inspiring? If there were no silence between the keys--all you would hear is noise. I like that point of view...

    A Walk Alone, Through Nature

    I love to go for a walk, whether down a prairie road or across a mountain path, by myself, just me and mother nature.  Watch butterflies dancing about, tall grass and flowers bending in the soft breeze.  The sun shining warmly on my face.  The fresh scent of the...

    “For now she need not think of anybody.

    She could be herself, by herself. And that was what now she often felt the need of - to think; well not even to think. To be silent; to be alone. All the being and the doing, expansive, glittering, vocal, evaporated; and one shrunk, with a sense of solemnity, to being oneself, a...

    At Night.

    I love love being alone in silence. My alone times are either late at night when everyone has gone to sleep or when everyone is busy doing things & have left the house leaving me alone to my silence & my thoughts. :-) I feel renewed afterward.

    I must admit that I do love the silence. Mostly when I'm all alone in one of my favorite spots. But I realized that when I'm alone it's never really quiet. I can hear the waves crashing or hear the breeze wheezing through the trees and grass. The frogs and insects croaking and...

    Still Love Being Alone & In Silence

    I still love being alone in silence. When your left alone to your thoughts it's just a wonderful feeling to re-group, meditate, or just let certain thoughts/ideas process in your mind. It helps me to get a new perspective on things.

    Being Alone Is Necessary For My Well Being

    I enjoy being with others somewhat but, I absolutely need my times of being alone in silence and sometimes with noise. When I'm alone it's a chance for me to mull things over in my mind. I've tried on several occasions to meditate and find it darn near impossible. My mind NEVER...

    Silence is a word that can describe

    who you are sometimes. I on the other hand am a big fun of silence for it is what gives me the opportunity to be myself. I know that it is not safe sometimes or it can be dangerous to be alone most of your time however I enjoy being alone. I love being alone. Try it sometime.

    There Something Nice About It.

    Don't get me wrong, I love hanging around friends and family and just socializing in general.  But, I do crave moments to myself.  There's something comforting about the silence.  Why I love late nights and early mornings.
