My iTunes: Gravel Lines by Amy Seeley

Another find from my images taken in while living overseas. We were on our way to Newcastle, England to see a concert with our daughter when I looked up at Waterloo Station just in time to see the above image. I began to crave solitude just watching this pigeon.

I am craving solitude now.....day 14...yes, day 14...with my husband gone on a business trip out of the country. Thankfully I have friends and family to keep me company until he returns. If you think about it, please say a prayer for us over here and for him as he travels around India. He is in the middle of a blizzard right now in Kashmir which is 50 miles from the Pakistani border.

We really miss him and are feeling the miles.

Check Amy Seeley out on iTunes. She has a beautiful voice...real "folksy"...is that a word? The song I am listening to is amazing.

Ah solitude... It's a nice thing. It's the reason that I'm sitting downstairs watching a soccer game while everyone else is asleep.

This is the second time today that I have read a blog that referenced snow in India. I hope John will be home soon!

nice song and nice shot.
try not to focus on the time you're apart - think about how lovely it'll be when he returns though.

Hope you are doing well with the wild weather headed your way. I have been in a "picture taking block" lately. Hope to recover soon!

I used to be on the other side of the faraway business trip equation, and I was always in awe of my wife's ability to keep it all together when I was away.

Praying for you all.

(And loving the softness of this scene. The light doesn't illuminate as much as it brushes, if that makes any sense.)

Phil is away quite a lot just now, and I miss him so much! the plus side is I appreciate him so much more when he comes back (at least for a little while! LOL)

There is a difference between solitude and lonliness. Friends and family can ease that lonliness and provide you with solitude to regroup and face the times ahead. My thoughts and prayers are with you and your family, and especially that wonderful Hubby of yours. I pray for his saftey.

Love the pigeon shot. I like the dreamy-ness of it.

Separation is on thing, literally half way around the world is another thing altogether. Hope he gets home soon. Safely.

Anna- wow. Our profiles are EERILY similar! Even more than you know because I don't have as much posted in my about me as you do! You take amazing photos. Keep up the good work. Absolutely beautiful. How long have you been shooting?

Bird's eye view. I wonder how pretty the world must be above eye level.
