On Solitude


“Solitude gives birth to the original in us, to beauty unfamiliar and perilous – to poetry. But also, it gives birth to the opposite: to the perverse, the illicit, the absurd.”
Thomas Mann, Death in Venice and Other Tales



On one hand there’s light, on the other, there’s the dark.

On one hand the inviting quiet, on the other, buzzing desolation.

Which side do you subscribe to?
