Mountain Solitude

Mountain Solitude

“Create a mosaic using cut paper.  Snippets of color from magazines are ideal for this.”  -from 365 A Daily Creativity Journal by Noah Scalin

“Ah! I need solitude. I have come forth to this hill at sunset to see the forms of the mountains in the horizon — to behold and commune with something grander than man. Their mere distance and unprofanedness is an infinite encouragement. It is with infinite yearning and aspiration that I seek solitude, more and more resolved and strong; but with a certain weakness that I seek society ever.”  Henry D. Thoreau   [Journal, 14 August 1854]

“Thousands of tired, nerve-shaken, over-civilized people are beginning to find out going to the mountains is going home; that wilderness is a necessity…” ― John Muir

“There’s a difference between solitude and loneliness.”
-Maggie Smith
