A journey of a thousand miles begins with one single step – Lao Tzu

It is not the desert island…

Solitude

Solitude

.

” It is not the desert island nor the stony wilderness that cuts you from the people you love.

It is the wilderness in the mind, the desert wastes in the heart

through which one wanders lost and a stranger.

When one is a stranger to oneself then one is out of touch with oneself,

then one cannot touch others….

Only when one is connected to one’s own core is one connected to others,

I am beginning to discover.

And, for me, the core, the inner spring,

can best be refound through solitude.”

.

-Anne Morrow Lindbergh, Gift from the Sea

  1. Beautiful…so beautiful. Thank you my lovely friend. I think of you each day I walk to the woods knowing that someone out there is also loving the trees and enjoying the solitude of being out in the nature. I think of you often Carolina. Take care and have a great day! Sharon
