“I have to be alone very often. I’d be quite happy if I spent from Saturday night until Monday morning alone in my apartment. That’s how I refuel.” -Audrey Hepburn
“The more powerful and original a mind, the more it will incline towards the religion of solitude.”-Aldous Huxley
“I find it wholesome to be alone the greater part of the time. To be in company, even with the best, is soon wearisome and dissipating. I love to be alone. I never found the companion that was so companionable as solitude.”-Henry David Thoreau

What Does Peace Mean To You?
I’ve posted recently about a new project about which I’m very excited: the Central Virginia Chapter of Writing For Peace, a local outreach of the national organization Writing For Peace.
Our first official chapter project is underway! But we need your help!
Submission Guidelines for Peace Vines
In many conversations about Writing for Peace, we’ve learned that people limit their definition of the word peace to its association with war. The many beautiful and varied ways we can define peace, as individuals or in the many groups, cultures, etc., to which we belong, too often get lost in the shadow of war versus peace. So we want to hear from as many people as possible, discussing what peace means to them personally.
Being curated by Brigid Hokana, Peace Vines will be a Youtube Channel featuring these short videos, with the hope of opening up the discussion of what peace can mean, and why it matters so much to all of us.
If you’re interested in submitting a video for inclusion in Peace Vines, please visit our Current Projects Page for submission details.
We can’t wait to hear from you. Peace.
