all these quotes and message on loneliness appearing before me today just when i feel at the height of solitude and singularity.
the universal phone is off the hook. lulls in connections open doors into my soul only visible to my heart. and when the phone begins to ring again i will be ready to shine.
“Life will break you.
Nobody can protect you from that, and living alone won’t either, for solitude will also break you with its yearning.
You have to feel.
It is the reason you are here on earth.
You are here to be swallowed up.
And when it happens that you are broken, or betrayed, or left, or hurt, or death brushes near, let yourself sit by an apple tree and listen to the apples falling all around you in heaps, wasting their sweetness.
Tell yourself you tasted as many as you could.”
~ Louise Erdich, The Painted Drum
