Solitude was made in response to Joanna Lilley‘s poem, Hope Stone. I was thinking about the searching we do while grieving, making meaning out of loss, feeling despair and loneliness alternating with the hope that a changing perspective can bring. Experiencing the solitude in nature can help one‘s spirit mend.
