5.0 out of 5 stars The solitary life for a lay person, 17 Feb 2002

This review is from: Silent Dwellers: Embracing the Solitary Life (Paperback)
The author describes how she is trying to live a solitary life after retirement from a high powered job. She lives in a normal house, has neighbours, a daughter (no longer living with her), aged parents and a telephone! She describes the lure of a wilderness existence and how that did not satisfy. She has come to some very practical accommodations with the inescapable aspects of her life that take her out of solitude. Her solutions are helpful and encouraging if one is thinking of following a similar path. She discovered the difference for herself between being a mystic and being a solitary and adapted her style of praying accordingly. This is only a short book but has some very helpful insights on the solitary life for a lay person with responsibilities and will hopefully inspire others following a similar way to record their experiences too. More lay people seem to be being drawn to this path but guidance for them is not easy to find.
