"Solitude allows us to develop our natural ability to build our inner creativity. Being constantly busy actually hampers our imagination,while boredom and idleness actually help invite inspiration, despite what society may tell us." Mary Oliver,  Upstream: Selected Essays.

  3. While my motto has always been "Better busy than bored", I also know that busy to me can be playing right there in that lovely alone abyss. And that sometimes not getting it, can make me nuts.
    Love to you!
