more Sandburg quotes
"It is necessary now and then for a man to go away by himself and experience loneliness; to sit on a rock in the forest and to ask of himself, 'Who am I, and where have I been, and where am I going?'...If one is not careful, one allows diversions to take up one's time-the stuff of life" - Carl Sandburg as quoted from a letter to his friend, Ralph McGill.

Oh, I love those Sandburg quotes! Both resonated with me. I feel like Charlotte's been one long experience in loneliness. As much as I would have liked to have avoided the experiences of the past year, it did give me the opportunity to figure out who I am, what I value, and what I want out of life...

Looks like you guys had a beautiful day!
