Solitude in Nature

“We amplify the richness of solitude when we experience it in nature. It seems to be the perfect setting for finding inner peace. Solitude in nature tends to let us find our place in the world; lets us feel a part of it; makes us belong. The immensity of nature, whether a starry night or the view from a mountain top, gives us a new perspective on life, washes away or minimizes our worries. How can we feel sad with all the beauty there to see? And how can we feel poor when all this beauty belongs to us?”
