and being aware of the space around you.
It is a condition of separateness.
Solitude is becoming one with the space around you.
It is a condition of union.
Loneliness is small,
solitude is large.
Loneliness closes in around you;
solitude expands toward the infinite.
Loneliness has its roots in words,
in an internal conversation that nobody answers;
Solitude has its roots in the great silence of eternity."
