On loneliness and being alone ...


Loneliness is complex, and for so many it is not a pleasant experience. As the holiday season approaches, it can be overwhelming. Sometimes the lonely feel isolated even when they are surrounded by people. Emotional isolation is real, and difficult for many. The feeling of isolation can create anxiety that is hard for many to understand. This is a great time to reach out and be a friend.

On the other side, I love ‘being alone’ in the morning. I took this picture on a foggy fall morning. I feel this way often. I get so much out of a few minutes in mediation and thoughtful reflection. It's even better if I can be close to nature. Enjoy the outdoors and some time to reflect.
