This photo is a piece for WordPress’s weekly photo-challenge. This week the challenge is to show what”Solitary” looks like to you.
This is my oldest son, walking home one afternoon this summer after visiting his cousins. He walked on ahead of me , telling me that he “just wanted to walk alone” for a bit, so I let him. He was feeling down because he had just realized that he’d be heading back to Texas for school and it would be a few months before seeing them again.
