Wild Places & Solitude - Part 2


Yesterday’s blog spoke of solitude and remoteness:
 
“Whenever possible I attempted to grab a day or even a few hours to escape into the fells, invariably on my own and with an un-written agenda of finding solitude.  The sense of remoteness and maybe even more an absence of human activity has always held a lure; an opportunity for reflection, planning and to seek new perspective.”





Is our experience one of a chosen solitude, or have we at times found ourselves in enforced places of isolation?

Is our solitude about being in that place of human absence and physical remoteness or have we known busy days with people around us yet still feel very alone with no-one to turn to?

Is it time now, whatever our circumstances, to spend a while ‘apart’ but without being ‘alone’?
