Solitude



It’s not how life was supposed to turn out.


There isn’t a map or blue print, but this wasn’t in the plan.


Never did I imagine that staying alone all weekend would be as calm and relaxing as this has been.


Nowhere in the grand scheme of things does it suggest that we mere humans are solitary beings and should isolate ourselves from the world, enjoying only our own company.


No one suggested that this was how life was supposed to turn out, quiet and calm and peaceful.


But that’s how things work out sometimes. When the least expected turn of events turns out to be the best turn of all.
