1. Solitude vs Loneliness
Can be beautiful
A sweet space; a moment in time
My private room; my sanctuary. In there
I can be myself without any mask
I can laugh or cry; be happy or sad
I can be me!

Solitude is watching the leaves as they fall
Be happy in your solitude, my friend
But flee from loneliness!
