all by myself..

The world today does not understand in either man or woman, the need to be alone.

How inexplicable it seems. If one says: I cannot come because that is my hour to be alone, one is considered rude,or egotistical. 

What a commentary on our civilization when being alone is considered suspect; when one has to apologize for it or make excuses.

Actually, these are the most important times in one's life - when one is alone. Certain springs are tapped into only when we are alone. The artist knows he must be alone to create, the writer, to work out his thoughts; the musician to compose; the saint, to pray.
