Solitude and silence both require faith.
You sit down for the day in a cozy little cabin by a big mountain, and you have to believe certain things:
You must have faith that stillness constitutes its own form of productivity.
You must have faith that the real you--and all her honest and unspoken thoughts--won't terrify you when you meet her. God can handle this unruly woman.
You also have to trust that God will help you find your way out of the dark woods when you walk up towards the mountain.
It was a great day away!
