Solitude And Peace 

Solitude And Peace –

“The monotony and solitude of a quiet life stimulates the creative mind.” – Albert Einstein

Greetings my dear readers! Tis the season to come together and yet here I am, ruminating about solitude. You see, as an introvert I cannot possiblystress the importance of solitude enough. Some might think it is exaggerated and roll their eyes, but truly, the lack of it might drive an introvert crazy.

We must understand that there is a huge difference between solitude and loneliness. Just because people choose to enjoy their solitude and peace from time to time, does not mean they are loners. Any person, even an extrovert, needs that time alone whether it is to introspect or just take a break from the hustle and bustle of life. Especially when you take off into the creative lane in life, solitude is gold. A disturbed mind cannot possibly create; when the mind is preoccupied, how can the imagination soar?

The best time to enjoy solitude, in my humble opinion, is either late at night or early in the morning. And thus I found myself with a cup of Orange Spicer tea from Typhoo in my magic marauders mug and my cats, early in the morning, enjoying my solitude. This tea is actually a fruit infusion that is caffeine and sugar free, thus being healthier.


My real name is Debra (Debbie Sue). Sarah is a nickname given to me in high school. My husband has always called me that so here in Florida It's all I am known by. I was born and raised in Illinois. My son and I moved to Colorado in 1982. I taught school for 17 years. Then I ran a homeschooling/preschool/daycare until 2006 when I moved to Florida after my son, Bobby died suddenly. He was almost 26. Danny and I live and work at a state park here. I miss the mountains and climate of Colorado. I miss snow and the four seasons. I miss Bobby.
