"We are caught up in the winds that blow every which way. And in the hullabaloo the thinking man is driven to ponder where he is being blown and to long desperately for some quiet place where he can reason undisturbed and take inventory. It may be that I exaggerate the need for occasional sanctuary, but I do not think so -- at least speaking for myself, since it has always taken me longer than the average person to think things out,"

-- Explorer Richard E. Byrd in his book, Alone. This was quoted by Andrew Sullivan yesterday under the title, "What Bloggers Miss." I'm a huge believer in 'alone time' to think things out and it's why I don't usually post long political examinations daily. It takes a while to think everything through.
