#121 - solace

In what do you find solace? What place is solace for you? Where do you go in yourself or outside of yourself when you need comfort or consolation? Why do you seek solace? What does it mean for you?

Jesus was a teacher and a healer who took solace in his faith with God.

This prompt might have been written for a recent post of mine... here are two haiku on escapist reading.

Hopefully I'll be back later with something fresh!

That was quicker than I thought... in reading other posts it occurred to me that, for me at least, solace is a reflexive verb

This prompt prompted more thoughts than I at first thought it would. I wrote furiously then pruned rigorously since I don't feel that folks like to read really long posts. Especially when they're anxious to have time to read all the other posts on Sunday Scribblings.

I wrote mine several months ago, but it still applies...The Beach is my place of solace. I run to the water when I get my feelings hurt or I need to be alone to think or I don't want to think at all.

Once more, a prompt that was more than apt. Just a couple of weeks since my mother's death, it is a word with much meaning for me. Thank you

I need to apologize in advance. The characters in this story would not understand the word "solace"...but still their lives are hard and wearing.

Solace can be found in many places and forms. I can't wait see where you find yours. Mine will be posted sunday am.

Definitely a place for solace, amidst all the activity. It's not nearly the contradiction it seems.

I'm a Pisces so water consoles me, lying by a babbling brook under a tree is the ideal spot for me to soothe my troubled soul...ciao

What a lovely subject. It will be interesting, maybe inspiring to learn where others find solace.

As always, thank you.

I enjoyed this prompt. Living in a very hostile house right now, it has shown me that I can learn to find solace again. Thank you:)

Looking forward to finding your solace....

A retread of a essay I wrote two years ago, but I think it speaks of my love of the outdoors, my place of solace.

I really like the Sunday Scribblings community, even when it's quiet! This prompt kept me thinking all week, and I wound up writing about writing, for when it goes well, that's my solace!

Super Prompt! Read and thoroughly enjoyed Mya's piece. While there was reminded of this site. Please read beyond the intro to my post to the poemTickling My Ivories under the post "Light my Fire."

This is my first time here. I thought about writing about peaceful places like Snowdon or the redwood forest, but also think that solace is anywhere that allows you to be you, even if it is a busy racetrack.
