Quiet @ Fun Friday

It's time for Fun Friday in our group, Blogging For Fun. We are doing an A to Z challenge. This week, we are working on the letter Q.


I lost a father and two younger brothers to heart disease and cancer. I hold them in fond remembrance, in memories both beautiful and painful.

In my thoughts, you're not too far away. In my heart, you're always with me. ---Unknown

"Lullabies have been sung...
A kiss, a hug, a prayer is done...
The kids are off to dreamy land
I stifle a cough, a sneeze and raise my hand
To catch a glimpse of that heaven
that silences my weary mind."
~ Zen ~

Font's Point, Anza Borrego Desert State Park
First time I sat on top of this desert cliff, I can't help the tears flowing down my face, I was overwhelmed not only by the surreal artistry in front of me that only our Creator can make, but also by the extreme peacefulness of the place that opens to us every pages of Earth's natural history.
The deep peacefulness and solitude in the desert allows me to see the promise of a beautiful life that passed through all the harshest tests of time. Though I do not think I can live far from the ocean and the forested mountains, but then, I also can not live far from the desert. The desert will always have that special place in my heart, a place of solitude and quiet, a place of inspiration, a place I will always love.

this church was taken somewhere on our trip to Denmark, it's a church in the middle of nowhere... a proof that God is ubiquitous... when i want silence, i go to church and pray and then i will feel everything will be alright..."

" the sun set and me in the desert of White Desert, National Park, Bahariyya, Egypt: in the desert... you will feel so alone... there's nobody else, it's only you and the desert.... and i love it...

That's me enjoying a quiet time in the beach.

I love watching the geese at Little Beaver Lake as they gracefully glide across the tranquil waters. The way they effortlessly skim across the lake reminds me of a figure skater flitting hither and thither upon an ice-covered pond. I took this picture a few years ago at a time when I needed to just get away and find a quiet place to think. I remember leaning against a gnarly oak by the water's edge, watching the geese and feeling peace gradually flood my soul.

Late afternoon, on a quiet Sunday, we passed by this quaint little town in Albuquerque, New Mexico. The shops were closed and there were hardly any cars on the road. There was an eerie silence save that of the rustling leaves and the crisp sound it makes as it dances with the wind.
