Solitude: In Pursuit of a Singular Life in a Crowded World by Michael Harris:
In defining the difference between loneliness and solitude, Harris takes the time to argue for the need to find solitude in the everyday while illustrating the immense value in doing so. Whether it’s considering the function of maps in our daily excursions, the power that lies within traditional (love) letter writing, or how and why we should allow ourselves to slip in-and-out of daydreams, Solitude was a pleasant read if only to help reaffirm some of the many things I already believe. Most importantly, this read helped me to realize that while I appreciate, value, and need to be alone on a regular basis, I have never been completely alone in my life. Recognizing this, there may be a time in the (near) future that I find myself correcting this.
