The Language Of Being Alone {Flickr Favourites}

This week there is a general theme to everyone's flickr favourites - loneliness or emptiness. I'm pleased that I was able to pick out a few photographs that have been in my favourites for an awfully long time and combine them with another of my favourite quotes.

“Language has created the word "loneliness" to express the pain of being alone. And it has created the word "solitude" to express the glory of being alone.” ~ Paul Tillich

The Language Of Being Alone

I'm curious to see how the rest of this week's participants have interpreted the theme, so I'll be heading over to check them out at Artmind as soon as I get back from work. Of course, if you have time, you should do it now.

  9. Such a beautiful quote and so true! I do love my time alone as it's the time when I go craft crazy ;) And when the loneliness gets too much to bear there are always friends to turn to.
    Love the photos too!

  14. Oh man, I think I LOVE the fact that you use a quote with the mosaics. Would you mind if we would make that next month's theme? Piece of cake for you for sure, Clair!
    I so much more prefer solitude to loneliness and I think the images you chose are expressing this really well! I love your outtake on the theme, Clair!
