Chairs for Winter Solitude

Blue chair resting under hemlock
CC Jean Stimmell 1/26/15
Pursuing originality, the would-be creator works alone. 
In loneliness one assumes a responsibility for oneself 
that one cannot fulfill.
Meditating on Solitude
CC Jean Stimmell: 1/23/15
True solitude is found in the wild places,
where one is without human obligation.*

Red Chairs on Pleasant Pond
CC Jean Stimmell: 2/11/11
From the order of nature we return
to the order – and disorder –
of humanity.*

*The quotes above are from Wendell Berry's book of essays:
"What are People for."
