Sanctuary in Solitude

I recently spent a three-day weekend away on my own, a solo writer's retreat. In the silence of aloneness, inspiration appears around every corner. My mind becomes quiet enough to listen to what my heart and soul need me to hear. My independent spirit so alive and at home in this blissful solitude. Deep breaths and joy-fullness abound. Ease and calm and sanctuary. Here are a few photos from my time away...
