Artists and the Quiet Life

As an artist, have you ever noticed just how noisy and distracting this world can be?

Has the realization struck you that the more gadgets you acquire, in the quest of making your life more efficient, the more hectic your life actually becomes?

“The monotony and solitude of a quiet life stimulates the creative mind.” Albert Einstein

I’m starting to wonder if there is some truth to the above quote.   How can an artist create under such insane and chaotic conditions created by the modern society?

Why do you think many artists seek out retreats in order to create?  Why do you think these places have rules in place in that there be little to no gadgets?

Perhaps Mr. Einstein was onto something.  I mean, he was a genius, right?

What about you?  What do you think?  Do you need the quiet and the solitude in order to write or paint?  Have you ever felt the need to get away from it all so you can think and dream again?
