Solitude slash Loneliness

Solitude slash Loneliness

In my job as a photographer, I’ve traveled to the far corners of the world, eaten at fancy restaurants, downed cocktails with gold flakes in them and woken up alone in more hotel rooms than I care to think about. I value time to myself, it gives me time to reflect about who I am and where I’m going next and over the years I’ve learned to appreciate the actual traveling, not just getting to the destinations I’m going to.

Yet I’ve always struggled with solitude. The duality of it all. How it all sounds nice and Buddhistic, appreciating time to yourself and all that, but then there’s the other side of the coin always present.


I have a fear of ending up alone. Building a life and have no one to share it with at the end of the day. Even when I do, even today when I am happy with people around me that I love, the fear always lingers in the background, it keeps me from appreciating what I have.

What if I build something and still end up
