Creative, Solitude

I wrote Creative, Solitude after having some thoughts on creativity and solitude while walking in the French Alps. I published this in Montriond, France.

You can’t always force creativity by consuming more content. Sometimes solitude is the answer. That does not necessarily mean meditating like a monk. Walking has often been one of the ways that great thinkers have sought solitude. Embracing solitude will allow your content-consumed brain to gain some perspective and work through a problem.
