Solitude – This week, show us what being alone means to you…If you’re finding yourself surrounded by too many people, or too many sensations, or too many obligations, take a quiet moment for yourself. Seek solitude, and reset.
Being alone is very different to being lonely. In this fast-paced world we live in, it is important to take some quiet time. I have taken these photos over the past few days, they say solitude to me! How about you?
Normally our holidays are taken in the high holiday season with people everywhere but now that we are retired we can travel whenever we want to. This week it’s been very different with quiet beaches, less traffic and slower paced days just perfect for riding our bikes and taking in the sights.
There’s a track winding back…solitude on a bicycle along a bush track.
Not a soul in sight! Solitude at the beach.
Sunrise over the water – the trees look as though they are cradling the sun as it rises out of the sea. A morning walk on my own is solitude at its best!
This quote by Mary Doria Russell sums it up perfectly:
How can you hear your soul if everyone is talking?
