There are times when I close myself in my room, seeking solitude and rest. At times it helps, at times it only aggravates my disturbed mind. And the other day as I was changing the page on the calendar, I read this quote (by Virginia Woolf) at the bottom of the page:
You cannot find peace by avoiding life.I guess she is right. Being an ostrich does not help, certainly not the ostrich itself! But I guess one does need moments of silence and being all by oneself to make some sense of what is going on around me. However, it is also a matter of prudence, when to withdraw and when to charge headlong!
