Of Loneliness and Solitude

I read somewhere that...
There is a very thin line between loneliness and solitude.
Between being alone and being lonely.

But the difference in what they mean is as huge as an ocean.
As thick as a jungle.

As only one who experienced both would know.

    It's an interesting question. In my experience, it's all a matter of mindset and degree. After losing my life partner 8 years ago, I enjoy much solitude and alone-ness. I'm also cyclically quite lonely and missing him, still.
