Facing the fact that time is what it is

The girls are almost back at school. In the meanwhile I am trying to get the work done that I normally do but too excited about the possibility of a large window of time with no interruptions. So until this starts, I am almost tingling with the possibility of making all those things I have dreamt of, and the thought of time without anyone.  

It is a wondrous thing - solitude - and not valued enough by far. I always saw it as an admirable thing - the ability to be alone, and to find comfort in oneself.
