“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 1886-1965

This water lily drifting apart from the others in a small lake inspired a bit of meditation regarding solitude. Personally, I think there is nothing better than spending a bit of time by yourself, becoming your own best friend. :)

I am a photographer who loves to paint. Or, I am a painter who loves photography? No matter, they are very compatible! :) I really enjoy working in watercolor, and love the magical qualities that it can give to a work of art! You will see photography,watercolor and acrylic paintings on my bubble. Hope you enjoy! :)

    Hi! Angie…what a great image…love the beautiful reflection on the deep blue water…illustrates so well how solitude can sometimes be a good thing…Great shot my dear!!

  • Thanks for the very thoughtful comment and fave Marie! I hope the solitude will soon cure my painter’s block. Just can’t seem to get in the mood, and with this terrible heat we are having it would be wonderful to do something indoors… like paint. :)
