Labor Day will have come and gone by the time this post is up. Red veins of traffic on the GPS of our iPhones will cover the screen, and a neighboring car’s bass woofer will pound in the long list of “to dos” going through our minds as we return to work after the warm months of summer. This is a good time to take a deep breath!
I am already missing the quiet moments of this past month; but I realize they are only a thought or an image away. Even in the midst of traffic and noise, in our minds or lives, we can find peace. More importantly, we must find peace, at every level, to balance both work and worry.
I want to share some of the most tranquil and beautiful images of my summer with you. I hope they will help you pause for peace.
What are some quiet memories of your summer?
Having a glass of wine on my back porch in the beautiful Hudson Valley, NY and realizing how lucky I was to be doing this when there is so many out there needing. It was truly a quiet private moment that made me think of where I want my life to go…
Dear Lois, Thanks for sharing this image. I find gratitude to be one of the most nourishing of all feelings, for it feeds on itself. May yours be a better day because of it.
Quiet moments amongst Nature, beauty, animals, and good friends. All soothe my soul and make me glad I’m alive. Solitude, journal writing, meditation, relaxing on my backyard deck. Being in the moment, living in the present, feeling grateful for so many things in my life—memories, heart-felt connections, driving Dancer down country roads. . .these are some of my happiest quiet moments.
I love the images you evoke. Thank you for sharing. big hugs, Eileen
