solitary refinement

I don't remember what I was thinking when I drew this...but solitude, adventure, and "the unknowns" of the future come to mind. I think it has a kind of mysterious fairytale-esque, Alice-in-Wonderland feel to it. 

Anyway, today I had a very quiet day by myself. I woke up feeling alone, and then slowly got accustomed to my "alone-ness" and decided to make a good day out of it. So let's see... I ate a bacon cheeseburger, lurked around shady marketplaces for craft supplies, read a short story over black sugar ginger milk tea (that's a mouthful... in more ways than one...), went to H&M and bought a thick-knit $3 scarf on sale from the men's department (I like man-clothes), made a DIY clutch (which I will show you tomorrow), and am currently staying up late to blog about my day. haha. I guess it's not so bad being alone sometimes. My solitary adventures shall continue tomorrow!

"Being solitary is being alone well: being alone luxuriously immersed in doings of your own choice, aware of the fullness of your own presence rather than the absence of others. Because solitude is an achievement."
