This week, show us what being alone means to you.
“One can be instructed in society, one is inspired only in solitude.” ~ Gary Mark Gilmore ~
Walking in nature in solitude gives one a sense of peace and space to connect with themselves and the life around them. The path is long and time stands still when I walking in the woods. Everything is in flow at that moment and nothing else exists.
No matter the weather, nature presents itself with a welcoming hello. Even as temperatures dip to 9 degrees I find comfort in the outdoors. It feels refreshing and energizes my spirit.
“I love to be alone. I never found the companion that was so companionable as solitude.” ~ Henry David Thoreau, ‘Walden’
I love watching people ice fishing. The weather never seems to deter them and they will spend hours on the ice in their solitude finding peace within themselves.
What do you do when you find your self alone? Do you enjoy time spent in solitude getting to know yourself?
