What had led me astray during the crisis, was my passion for being
alone, my delight in solitude. Nature seemed to me full of wonders,
and I wanted to steep myself in them. Every stone, every plant,
every single thing seemed alive and indescribably marvelous. I
immersed myself in nature, crawled, as it were, into the very
essence of nature and away from the whole human world.
