Skywatch Friday: Solitude


From August 14, 2011
“Solitude is not something you must hope for in the future. Rather, it is a deepening of the present, and unless you look for it in the present you will never find it.” (Thomas Merton)

  7. It seems like so many people are suddenly rushing around right now trying to cram as much summer as they can into the last few days. To me solitude is so much more refreshing. Lovely photo accompanying this quote.

  9. I like the place where sea meets sky. I appreciate everything that Thomas Merton has written. Thank you.

    A MAN WHO LOOKED UP AT THE SKY

    A man who looked up at the sky
    Saw ravens and clouds flying by.
    He had to look up,
    The sky filled his cup—
    He’s my kind of sky-watching guy!
