Solitude’s dome,
faithful escape
Embrace a breath,
silent release
Pause to reflect,
find broken strength
Stone oasis,
peaceful retreat

This has always been one of my favorite photographs. I can’t help but wonder who this woman is and what story surrounds her. I never saw her face, but her spirit was vibrant and quite palpable in the air.
