I love to be alone. And to discover things that are alive in me or that ask for mild attention and time. I need to be alone for my sanity’s sake. However I have felt very connected and touched by acts of love from family, friends and animals. I have felt their love and care for me. And I feel privileged to support them with my presence and care. These contacts help me develop and remain vital, connected. Ann Grasso September 18, 2017 Reply I wondered how many folk would see “the other side of this coin,” and I quite agree with you. “No man is an island,” according to John Donne. In today’s world of connectivity however, some of us forget the need for alone/quiet time, I worry. And I suspect what Agnes Martin is trying to convey is that we need time to reflect in order to fully appreciate the time with others. Delighted to hear from you Marguerite.
