life through the lens... I feel like I am constantly in search of quiet. A quiet mind, quiet life. I was thinking about how funny it is that at the end of summer, I start looking forward to the quiet of autumn and winter when things calm down, but in reality as soon as you finish up with that last flourish of yard work, you have the start of - what is it my friend Lalie calls it? - Hallowthanksmas. That's a whirlwind three months, so really the quiet doesn't come until January and February.
What are your favorite ways to enjoy quiet? Mine are:
1. Sitting in silence. No music. No TV. Only the birds and the wind.
3. Puttering around the house, arranging things on shelves and tables, and decorating for Hallowe'en.
4. Flipping through a beautiful magazine and drinking a cup of afternoon coffee.
5. Writing in my journal.
How do you carve out quiet time for yourself?
