The gift of solitude

I like spending time on my own. I run (mostly) on my own, I walk my dogs on my own. Well, obviously my dogs are there but they can’t speak. Not in a language I can understand anyway.

I don’t fear it. I used to, but I don’t now. I love the company of others, I need that, but I also need my own company. Like many things in life, I need it mostly when it’s not there.

I met Jennifer Crook on a harp day at Morley Harps a couple of years ago, and I adore reading her blog. This post reminded me that some people crave solitude and aren’t as lucky as me to have it on tap.

I gave myself many of the gifts she mentions in her post, and I look forward to really enjoying them in 2013.
