‘There are so few empty pages in my engagement pad,
or empty hours in the day, or empty rooms in my life
in which to stand alone and find myself.
Too many activities, and
people, and things.
Too many worthy activities, valuable things,
and interesting people. For it is not merely the trivial
which clutters our lives but the important as well’.
Anne Morrow Lindbergh, ‘Gift from the Sea’
