Choosing to enrich your life by yourself is very different from being “lonely.” In Celebrating Time Alone, Lionel Fisher shares his personal reflections on solitude, brought into sharp focus by living alone for six years on a remote Pacific Northwest beach.

He supplements his own reflections by interviewing men and women in sixteen states, in both rural and urban settings, who have stretched the envelope of their aloneness to Waldenesque proportions.

All the material is intended to offer counsel, inspiration, affirmation, insights, encouragement, and advice on living well alone, to help learn to use solitude and periods of aloneness for self-discovery and personal growth—whether they choose aloneness or have it thrust on them.

About the Author:

Lionel Fisher’s reflections on solitude came into sharp focus during six years spent by himself on a remote Pacific Northwest beach where he kept a detailed journal to record his thoughts, feelings, and emotions during this climactic period of willful isolation. The author of On Your Own: A Guide to Working Happily, Productively and Successfully from Home, and The Craft of Corporate Journalism, he also writes a column on the art of celebrating time alone.

Review:

If Lionel Fisher isn't the world's leading authority on "splendid solitude," he certainly qualifies as one of its most eloquent advocates. A sensitive, articulate, highly entertaining writer, Fisher presents a remarkable collection of stories with the collective capacity to touch and inspire readers to seek their own paths to personal discovery and self-fulfillment.
—Thayer Cheatham Willis, MA, LCSW psychotherapist

I recognize these people! They are Everyman! With sensitivity, compassion, and humor, they tell of their odysseys to self-realization through solitude. Celebrating Time Alone is a keeper—a book to return to again and again, whenever courage and hope are needed. I love these people!
—Sarah Jane Hardy, MSW social worker
