Finding Solitude Part: I

I am writing this entry from the parking lot at my place of work. What am I doing out here? Finding solitude. Sometimes our lives, our lineups, our roadways and our work schedules can become so hectic that this is simply the only thing to do. At work I find solitude by taking my lunch break in the parking lot with my car backed up to a canyon. I put a camping chair behind it and eat and write as the breeze pours over me. It’s not much, but it is a moment I have in my day that is mine, and no one else’s, and I find that to be so important.
