Practice the art of solitude

Iain Todd shares this thought from the Northumbrian Community daily readings:

This reading from Anne Morrow Lindbergh (photo above) surely speaks into our situation today….and may help us realise that fullness Christ promises..

It is a difficult lesson to learn today,
To leave one’s friends and family and deliberately
Practice the art of solitude
For an hour
Or a day
Or a week.

For me the break is most difficult….

And yet, once it is done,
I find there is a quality
To being alone that is
Incredibly precious.

Life rushes back into the void,
Richer,
More vivid,
Fuller than before!
