Jerusalem 9372: Solitude

Nun-Jerusalem_9372

A Nun in The Church of the Holy Sepulchre.

The theme for #photo101 today is Solitude, so I thought that this photo of a nun in The Church of the Holy Sepulchre in the capital of Israel, Jerusalem, would be suitable.

According to psychologytoday.com, Solitude is the state of being alone without being lonely. It is a positive and constructive state of engagement with oneself. Solitude is desirable, a state of being alone where you provide yourself wonderful and sufficient company.

The Church of the Holy Sepulchre, the Basilica of the Holy Sepulchre, or the Church of the Resurrection by Eastern Christians, is a church within the Christian Quarter of the walled Old City of Jerusalem. The site is venerated as Calvary (Golgotha), where Jesus was crucified, and also contains the place where Jesus is said to have been buried. The church has been an important Christian pilgrimage destination since at least the 4th century as the purported site of the resurrection of Jesus. (source: Wikipedia)
