(n.) Forest solitude. The term consists of two separate words: Wald meaning “wood/forest” and Einsamkeit meaning “loneliness” or “solitude” and although it describes a feeling, it is often used in speech as if it were a physical place. The concept of Waldeinsamkeit might seem scary or unsettling (the idea of being alone in the woods), but it is definitely a positive thing: it suggests a calm, contemplative atmosphere amidst a beautiful setting. When translating into English, words like “solitude”, “meditation”, and “contemplation” are often used, as is the phrase “being at one with the universe”. However, it is so specific that it is difficult to find an English equivalent.
