I crave solitude.
Alone in the forest or by water,
I feel renewed.
|my ski trail through the forest|
On my old touring skis, I was having difficulty getting up after falling.
I'm not supposed to strain and struggle because of my heart.
Remember - I did tear my artery by floundering in deep snow.
I recently bought new touring skis that I can get into and out of easily.
I've been venturing into the forest alone once again.
It's wonderful having the freedom to explore by myself.
|can you hear the quiet?|
I understand that I can have it both ways.
I have a husband who is my life partner/best friend.
I have an extended, loving family.
I have close relationships with dependable friends.
But, I also enjoy precious interludes of solitude.
Are you satisfied with your own company?
Do you enjoy being alone?
