The folk at WordPress are asking us to give them our definition of solitude, for this week’s challenge https://dailypost.wordpress.com/photo-challenges/solitude/
Here’s my take on it.
I value time spent alone, with my own thoughts. I guess I’m lucky in that I can find my solitude in a room full of people, or a busy environment, if I choose to. I just retreat into myself. Quite literally in a world of my own.
But, to get myself a really big dose of solitude – nature is my addiction.
Whether I have an hour to roam around, or a snatched five minutes, nature works her magic every time with me.
Solitude to me is that sense of truly being connected to your body, soul and mind. The three can so often be off in different directions. To fuse them together brings with it a sense of solitude and peace. A heightened sense of just being… a pretty cool fix, I think.
We enter this world by ourselves. We live alone with our thoughts and we depart this world by ourselves.
Solitude is a gift.
I’m looking forward to seeing what other folk come up with… click on the above link to see for yourself.
