Day 5 Solitude

As I looked around trying to find a picture for this I looked behind me and saw this…

  
Sit on my front porch when I have a minute and this reminds me to be thankful for the men and women that fight for my freedom everyday. It reminds me to be thankful that I can sit on the porch and fly my flag.

The wind blowing reminds me of the breath that each one takes sonI can live in a place that I am free to think and share my thoughts with people.

This picture also reminds me of a happy place. Basketball goal to remind me of my youth….an old Dodge truck that reminds me of my 20’s. Life was simpler then.

Thanks for stopping by!

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.
