Useful Loneliness

Yesterday I had a conversation with a woman about loneliness. I happened to mention that loneliness has its own kind of usefulness and that loneliness is often a door to creativity. I’m not sure the woman was impressed.

This morning, while in another conversation with a friend, I heard myself say, “All the best poetry and love songs come from loneliness.”

Ride the horse of loneliness to the corral of creativity.
