Too Much Quiet Is Maddening!

Some days, 24 hours is too much to stay put in, so I take the day hour by hour, moment by moment. I break the task, the challenge, the fear into small, bite-size pieces. I can handle a piece of fear, depression, anger, pain, sadness, loneliness, illness. I actually put my hands up to my face, one next to each eye, like blinders on a horse. Regina Brett

Loneliness is, like, when you wish someone else was there, and solitude is when you enjoy being alone. I don’t always wanna be alone, but I definitely like pockets of solitude to recharge and come back to myself. I think that’s so important for everyone. Jonathan Van Ness

I grew up as the oldest of five.  I always had to share the bedroom with my younger brother.  The three girls the same.  That meant there wasn’t much time or space just to be alone.  

Oh, how I wished for a space that was all my own, a place where I could retreat to, to read a book, take a nap, or just lay on the bed and think.

Now I own my own place, live alone, and at times I wouldn’t mind all that chatter and activity.  It would drive back the almost smothering still silence around me.  At times I would almost wager to say that I can hear the very blood coursing through my veins.

Too much quiet is quite maddening!
