The Solitudes in One Hundred Years of Solitude

{As I like the unimportant things in life, things that at a first glance hold no purpose, no immediate reason, I do plenty of things that serve that point. So I’ve listed all the mentions of solitude in Gabo’s One Hundred Years of Solitude. I kept reading it, and marking religiously the solitudes. Then I’ve washed some dishes and listed one or two from it, showered and then listed four, went to the bazaar and then listed three, woke up at 3am and listed some more, and so it ended one bitter morning when the sun was taking a revenge on the earth bellow. The day before the first hint of Boishakhi storm, almost in a very cheeky way, resembled the storm that wiped off Macondo. So here it is, the solitudes, that at a first glance serve no purpose. }
