Fenton Johnson in rich, beautiful language has crafted a wonderful exploration of the "solitary" life which, as he demonstrates, can take many forms and shapes but relies on a person's answering of an unwavering call to beauty, truth and love for all people and all creation. Johnson lays out an expansive vision of what it means to live as to oneself, even in the midst of relationships and society. I found this work to be incredibly affirming and freeing for my spirit, which thrives in solitude even as I manage a complex network of relationships in my external life. This work nourished my creative soul and showed me a path to my best life.
