One word is worth 1000 words.
I like alone, alone with my thoughts, and sometimes I like to share it. Painting is an alone endeavor. One on one, face to face.
Humanity is the most interesting. Each of us have so many details, just in the face alone. Add as many details as you can, like Rembrandt did, or extract a few details and isolate them from the noise.
Quiet alone time delving, developing undiluted distilling, and drawing out single ideas is meditative and builds our foundations. Our future is alone, meaning, we must think for ourselves if we are going to stand, enjoy and be valuable to others.
