Quiet

“Quiet is peace. Tranquility. Quiet is turning down the volume knob on life. Silence is pushing the off button. Shutting it down. All of it. - Amir”

Oh Tammy hate to hear about all the dust storms. I loved the Kite Runner and the quote from that. My sister-in-law is leaving for Israel on April 2nd. So wish I could go with her. Blessings to all your friends and family.

Quiet, it is something I treasure the older I get. No radio or TV blaring, just silence. Perfect.
Hugs to you,

Linda said...

Lovely photos of Jingles and the Worm Moon - all of them are nice actually. :)

Hope you're enjoying a blessed week and I totally echo your quote - turn it all off. Enjoy the quiet. :)

Marilyn said...

turn everything off...but the purring...Jingles is adorable

September Violets said...

Your photos very much capture the essence of your quote. I saw the moon looking huge like that the other night and wished I had my camera with me! Wasn't it beautiful! Your cat looks a bit miffed that you are taking his photo rather than opening the door for him ;) Hope you are enjoying some peace today. Wendy

Betsy said...

Love your photos. I, too, enjoy quiet and peace. My own company never bores me! :-)
Blessings,

A very beautiful post Tammy, beginning with such a lovely quote.
In the busyness of life we all need some quiet, peace, tranquility and shutting down is the only way.
Your images reflect your words so well.
Blessings to you dear.

Dearest Tammy,
Wonder what Jingles is thinking... looking at that elephant with its trunk up.
You always post great quotes and nice photos.
Hugs,

Beautiful shots! I definitely enjoy the quiet. It is so necessary to be still every once in a while.

Thank you for the lovely moment of quiet. I hate to tell you but I think Jingles wants to come inside - now!!!

Beautiful pictures and wise words. Here in Sweden it's very cold and more snow to come.

I enjoy quiet!
Sometimes I cannot believe how loud it can be!

podso said...

A beautiful post, Tammy. The photos just say peace and quiet. We hoped our granddaughter would be born on that beautiful full moon night but so far she has lingered inside her mama a bit longer. Maybe tonight!

Your little butterflies are adorable!

Yvonne said...

I savor quiet times. :) Love your photo of the moon over the city.

Kim Andersen said...

Lovely post Tammy ... I have had a quiet day ... It satisfies a craving sometimes :)

It's so amazing to me that we look at the same bright moon (I know...it's easily explained) but it's such a "God" thing to me. The older I get the more I appreciate the sound of silence & peace. Jan

It was way too cloudy here last night to see the moon, not that I'm complaining it appears the temperature is finally taking a turn towards autumn. Thanks for the moon pic. Quiet is perfect. Lovely picture of Jingles.
I see your next bunny is coming along nicely.
Easter wishes to you.

Deborah said...

Thank-you! Just beautiful!

Just this morning, I was thinking of silence, and the benefits it brings.

Yarni Gras! said...

my favorite time of day is early morning before all the electronics are turned on!

Cheryl said...

Your photos are awe inspiring..... then I spotted the crochet circles-- which then made me laugh because I immediately thought of pasties. I know right? Where is my mind? LOL
big hugs,
Cheryl

Kit said...

Lovely. So lovely. Kit

Melanie said...

Beautiful photos...my favorite, of course, is the one of Jingles. :-)

Nancy said...

Wow, the picture of the moon is amazing! Beautiful. It puts things in a different perspective. We run around like crazy, so busy with LIFE and we forget to pause long enough to realize that there is a whole universe of beauty out there.

Your photography is so good and you don't have to say a word. Your pictures say it all. I read the Kite Runner but that book just about broke my heart. Great books have the power to do that sometimes.

Serena Lewis said...

Beautiful photos, Tammy! xx

Kathleen said...

Love all your spherical pics. I love the quote too. Quiet time is precious to me. And you're right time is flying by! I say it all the time. Enjoy your spring break. Are you off on one of your trips?
