A new writing challenge from Chris Donner:
What does solitude mean to you? How do you experience solitude? Think about this:
Language has created the word “loneliness” to express the pain of being alone. It has created the word “solitude” to express the glory of being alone. – Paul Tillich
Right now, I live alone. I spent most of my time alone. That’s just the way it is. It’s nothing for you to worry about or pity me for. I ENJOY IT.
I’ve blogged before about being an introvert – an INFP to be precise. Again that’s nothing for you to worry about or pity me for. I ENJOY IT.
Occasionally I get lonely but not often – when that happens I go out – see people – talk – listen – spent time in nature. Usually I’m glad to get home alone again.
So SOLITUDE – what does it mean to me?
I tried getting poetic here but it was all a bit cliched. Putting it simply – it’s time to think, time to sink/fly in deep meditation without interruptions, it’s time to dream, time for craft, time for photography, for blogging and more…
Solitude – I LOVE IT
