Language... has created the word "loneliness" to express the pain of being alone. And it has created the word "solitude" to express the glory of being alone. ~Paul Tillich~

Do we all remember being sent to our rooms as children? How about standing in the corner, or maybe even a time out, as they call it today. Feeling lonely and alone. Oh, the trials of youth!

As adults, how many of us could recharge the soul in the luxury of delicious solitude? To listen to the rhythm of one's heartbeat and take a conscious breath. Live in the moment, mindful of the landscape and time to rejoice in the deafening silence of one's mind. Just to be!
Sounds like an adult time out, might just be a prescription for sweet reclamation.
Seek it my friends, in an empty room, or a quiet corner or on a rustic old chair overlooking nature. Solitude, sweet solitude, a time out, to fuel one's being! 

Pin It!

Although it isn't solitude, a walk with you does that for me. I love to share your thoughts and to have a audience for my stories. We can exercise the body, soul and our mind all within one pleaurable trip around the community.
