Solitude

Solitude—noun [sol-i-tood]

  1. the state of being alone; seclusion: to enjoy one’s solitude
  2. remoteness from habitations; absence of human activity: the solitude of the Grand Canyon
  3. an unfrequented place: a solitude in the mountains

In today’s fast paced world, it is not only difficult for people to find solitude but many have no idea what true solitude is. I, on the other hand, crave the solitude of the back-country; out of touch with civilization but strongly connected to the natural world.
