I haven’t posted in a while. Life happens and you don’t have time.
This topic, “Solitude” struck a chord with me. I seek solitude, I thrive on being alone. I always have, even as a child. I seek refuge in being alone, preferably in nature. As a young woman I read Henry David Thoreau’s “Walden Pond” and in my early twenties I tried to emulate his experiment by living in a rustic cabin in the woods of Vermont. Solitude to me is peace, a time for self reflection, an opportunity to acknowledge what is truly important.
