Weekly Photo Challenge: Solitary

26 Sep

Spending time alone




Without people. Being alone. Secluded.

This is not a bad thing, unless you’re in prison.

But for everyone else out there … every parent  or overworked person solitude is a good thing.

No yelling.

No Nickelodeon.

No diapers.

No laundry.

No cell phones.

No bosses.

No, what’s for dinner?

No chaos.

No hysteria.

No meltdowns.

No need for Advil.

But yes …

Yes for peaceful.

Yes for quiet.

Yes for alone time.

Yes for serenity.

Yes for “me” time.

Yes for margaritas.

Yes, for solitary.


At least once a month … yes.

    With wisdom comes the knowledge that drinking alone is not a problem. Not being able to find the time to do so? THAT’S the problem…..

      So true! So true you definitely need that alone time.

      Definitely. Those once-in-a-while moments seem so distant. I think they’ve now become once-in-a-blue-moon. I want to get back to once in a while.

    I share your thoughts. Being alone for a moment, having a time for ourselves, indulging in a much needed peace and quiet, and yes, a cold refreshing drink all these are a good thing . We needed to find our serenity, to be healed and made whole once again after going through life’s ups and down. Have a great weekend. Beautiful post!
