It seems that back in 2007, on this blog, I was doing something similar to what I am doing now - excerpting from Notes on a Philosophy of Solitude, and including a Merton photograph. Interestingly, those excerpts are slightly different from the ones I've chosen for this Lenten meditation on solitude. The photographs are different too.
The 2007 excerpts are here:
Solitude in Community- August 31, 2007
Loneliness in which each single spirit must confront the Living God - August 30, 2007
Spiritual poverty - August 29, 2007
True solitary, False solitary - August 12, 2007
