STILLNESS

The stillness in the sunset from my front step!
I think I have talked about this before. I am not really fond of stillness. Not as in quiet. I feel as if my mind races when it gets too quiet. I am a worrier. My family can attest to that. And for the most part I don't think any of them much like it. As a matter of fact neither do I but it is what it is. And therefore when things get still I can start to imagine things happening and my mind begins to go crazy. So as for quiet I am not a fan. However, with that being said, I do like stillness. As in the stillness of the air. The stillness of the water. The stillness of the day. The stillness of my heart. So today we celebrate stillness.

  4. Like you, stillness often provokes the bug-a-boos In my mind to start running amok. I never paused to appreciate stillness in the air. (Like the next time I have to travel by air!) :)

    PS - Your home is lovely!

    1. Thank you Kwiz! I stood on my front porch, looking to the west, and took them as the sun was setting. The colors in the sky were beautiful. Happy Thanksgiving my friend.
