Q is for Quiet

I have come to really enjoy some quiet time
The beach has always been a calming influence in my life.  I can sit and watch the water and think with only the sounds of the wind and the ocean as my companions.
The Majesty and beauty of the mountains inspires awe in me.  The quiet is so powerful.
When it first snows, the quiet surrounds you like the earth is standing still while covered in a blanket of white.
Nature is amazing and butterflies in all their beauty make me stop and look at my world without the hustle and bustle 
Listen to the Quiet 

Joining Alphabe-Thur

Wishing you JOY,

Linda

I love quite too...maybe it was because I grew up with 7 brothers and sisters!! I've tried to convince my granddaughter that quite is good; a work in progress. And, yes, great photos. Happy weekend, dear friend, XOXO

Quiet - solitude is very relaxing.

Nature has always been renewing for me and the time to spend taking it in is time I enjoy. I always take my camera along as I love to capture moments and then share with others--"see what I saw." Maybe they, too, can enjoy the feeling.

We all need a time of quiet in our life.

Beautiful post Linda and wonderful pictures. Everyone needs some "Q-Time". Nothing better than the wonders of nature to make you stop, listen and relax.

You got some great photos, Linda. I love the puffy dandelion seed head! I am another that prefers the quiet of early morning, there is just something special about sitting on the back porch with a cup of coffee while everything is just awakening.

Loved this post, Linda. Soooooo peaceful and true! I need to embrace the quiet more. Susan

Sarah said...

Beautiful, Linda! I suspect quiet isn't something you have a lot of with two active grandchildren. Of course that's a good thing!
Makes one appreciate the quiet times all the more. Ha!
Enjoy a quiet weekend.

I am so needing some quiet time these days and I am not getting it. I bet you need it too with Tiger and the baby.

I also find peace and quiet in all your pictures. My favorite quiet place is by the sea...I also enjoy the forest but I can also find peace and quiet from being at home with my kitties.

Oliva Ohlson said...

Beautiful post!!! For me being close to water has always been quiry calming effect.

Rue said...

Beautiful pictures, Linda :)

I find solitude at home, when no one is here... doors open with the sounds of birds chirping outside, me typing away, reading or gardening. I don't like it forever, but it's sure nice to have when I get it ;)

xo,
rue
