One Word Wednesday : Solitude

"Solitude is very different from a 'time-out' from our busy lives. Solitude is the very ground from which community grows. Whenever we pray alone, study, read, write, or simply spend quiet time away from the places where we interact with each other directly, we are potentially opened for a deeper intimacy with each other."   --Henri Nouwen



 sol·i·tude
noun
the state or situation of being alone.
"she savored her few hours of freedom and solitude"

  1. This is a good post on the topic “solitude”. I love being alone and I am used to it. I prefer my own company on most days.

  2. sometime you need a calm place with no people around and just you. it's the best place to be alone and be with you i would rather say.
