Hermit - A Rite of Passage for Everyone
At some point in everyone's life, there is a desire for solitude. A need for that blank slate onto which we can throw all of our thoughts, and try to make sense of our lives. It's a call to order, to quiet the little demons and find the peace that lies within the stillness of the dark pool. Each one has their own path to the "little house" of contemplation and peaceable understanding. To be afraid to go there, is to deny yourself true life. To live in fear is not to live at all. Utter stillness, calmness, quiet. Breathe, and know your own breath. Like the little cat that hides under the sofa, quietly watching. Watching your world from the sidelines, for a minute, or more. Taking the time that is needed to rest and reflect.
