Day 5 Solitude

Webster defines solitude as the quality or state of being alone or remote from society.
I recently went to DC and spent some time at Arlington. I got there when it first opened and there were very few people there. I spent a few hours walking around and enjoying the quite of this cemetery. This place touched me in a way that I can’t even explain. As I looked around I saw this and had to take the shot….

If you get the opportunity to go to Arlington National Cemetery don’t take the tram around the cemetery, take a walk.
I got there first and the solitude of the Honor Guard walking the Tomb of the Unknown Solider is so humbling….

But I have one more to share…

Being by yourself and just listening to the world around you and what is inside you is the best medicine.

  1. It is amazing how you captured such a spiritual moment at the cemetery. Love the beach one, too, naturally!! LOl You are so talented and I love your “eye” for the capture the moment pictures. It says more than any words can say! Love you! So proud of you! Thank you for sharing!

  2. Having NEVER been on a beach, I certainly enjoy seeing pictures of it and envisioning myself walking next to the water with the sand between my toes. Its on my bucket list (if I can find the bucket)! The cemetery shot is awesome. So many lives lost while serving our country. Quite humbling!
