A solitary figure, alone but not lonely, walks away… down the beach in the distance.
Listen (below) to a beautiful song about Solitude.

I have a need
For solitude
I’ll never be
Safe in crowded rooms
I like the sound
Of silence coming on
I come around
When everyone has gone

I have a need
For cool, verdant spaces
Beneath the trees
Secret empty places
Nobody knows
So no one will intrude
I have a need
For solitude

Mary Chapin Carpenter singing…..

But you can find me, when the light is changing
At that time of day when there’s
Little day remaining
You can find me where I’ve been waiting
Waiting here for you

I never was
The pretty girl in school
I never was
Fast, tough and cool
All I was
All my life it seems
Was hard to love
Harder now to keep
But you can find me, when the light is changing
At that time of day when there’s
Little day remaining…

    This song is so perfect – it’s the way I so often feel myself. And this image is just the most beautiful interpretation of that feeling. We have to get to the point I think where we are comfortable with our own company and find there a friend in ourselves. Gorgeous Jade. xox

  • I agree, Lianne! Thanks so much for your message! ??
