Become Someone-ALONE

the snow fall; in saying over to myself imperishable things memorized long ago; in thinking or in not thinking. My mind is refreshed, my spirit strengthened.
Every family should grant its members periods of solitude in which to develop their individual personalities. The group around the fireplace in the evening maintains congeniality more easily if its several members spent some part of each day by themselves. Family excursions take on new excitement if occasionally the several members are encouraged to go off by themselves.
Married couples regain their identity as persons instead of pairs if each sometimes goes off alone. The adventurous partner returns with something new to talk about and with the inevitable confidence and refreshment which being on one's own always engenders. An occasional month away from one's husband or wife increases the happiness and romance of life together.
Books were written alone and must be read and considered alone. Pictures were painted alone, and no amount of dependence on the judgment of others can ever reveal them to us. Art and music will always remain a mystery to us if we run through galleries in herds or attend concerts as social functions. And the bobolinks over American fields will have no meaning for us unless we go alone to see them, soaring and singing in the sun.
Yesterday I took a long walk in the country. As I watched the fluttering bobolinks and heard their wild rippling song, I thought of the almost passionate love the English have for their skylarksthose symbols, as Santayana calls them, of the English spirit. I wondered why it is that we Americans do not have equally passionate loves for those birds and flowers and trees which are distinctly American. To the Scotsman, the heather is a portion of himself. Why do not our own arbutus, blue gentians and mountain laurel, our elms and redwoods and pointed firs, stand to more of us as signs and tokens of home, as indissoluble parts of ourselves?
Most of us never seek the riches of our American countryside by ourselves. We are a people either unused to being alone or actually
