Alone, but not lonely,

Single, but not secluded;

Mute, but not silent,

Amiss, but not deluded.

Singular, but not strange,

Particular, but not elusive;

Separate, but not a loner,

Private, but not exclusive.


This beautiful leaf stands alone, but somehow is still a part of the world around her. ย  I find myself drawn to her individuality, charmed by the way she nonchalantly takes her place in her sphere…

    Very good. It makes alone seem like such a good and comfortable place.

      It’s almost like we need an affirmation to give us ‘permission’ to enjoy that space, isn’t it? Thanks Lyle.
