WPC Solitary

Solitary Man

Many people equate solitude with loneliness, but I find it comforting and restorative. Because of social media’s ubiquity, we are constantly connected to others. Even when we are physically alone, we are very rarely truly solitary. Unplugging is good, and introspection is important, but most of us don’t get enough opportunity to do either.

Here’s The difference

  2. Wow, your “Two Lonely People” is just great, whereas the man in the boat is enjoying his solitude. You captured the difference so creatively here!!! For me, lonely is when I have not chosen to be alone, whereas solitude is when I have.

  3. That second shot is so sad. Love the first one, Carol, and very much agree that time alone is necessary, certainly for me. When “connected”, time in person is to be sought as well. As much as I love the ease of connecting via internet, I hate to see personal time together suffer from it. It’s a balancing act.
