QuotationI was very happy to get your advent letter and your book Tiempo y abismo which I enjoyed thoroughly, your praise of earth and of the senses"”and your struggle with time. I still have to fight a bit with time myself when it comes to writing letters, but for the rest I am now living in solitude and strictly taking three to four hours a day for meditation, besides reading and studying. And I try to keep up with writing (I will send you some recent essays).
