Flying Solo

Often when I travel for work, my husband comes along.  But not always.  I love traveling with him, but I find that I do some of my best self-reflection when I travel alone.  I was in Fort Worth, Texas for work recently, and went to the Kimball Museum on a local recommendation.

The museum was hosting an exhibit of Claude Monet's early works and it was just the tonic I needed to recharge my emotional soul.  I was able to view so many of his lesser known paintings; there wasn't a single water lily in the exhibit.

If you've never visited an art museum alone or traveled alone, try it out.  On a regular day, I find I have to fight through a fair amount of static in the airwaves to really find the peace and quiet it takes to self-reflect, and out of doing so, to grow.  Introverts especially need this type of time for self-reflection.  Sometimes we introverts feel we don't have permission to be as quiet as we'd like to be in a society that seems to value the friendly, outgoing types.

Since I was flying solo on this trip, I took all my own photos for this shoot.  How'd I do?
