Solitude always opens new windows of learning for me. The view is quite interesting, because even though I am viewing from the outside looking in, I do not sense exclusion, or loneliness. In fact there is a great sense of clarity and freedom in allowing the silence to manifest. I gain new levels of strength and understanding by simply observing my life. With inner strength nothing can shake me, I am at peace, I am grounded, I am one with the earth and whole again, ready to watch my path unfold. The road awaits, once again.
