    Black Unicorn

    So there's this place in the hills behind my house where a herd of wild horses live. I love to sit and just watch them. There are three new foals this year. I even got to see one being born. They grow so quickly. The leader of this herd is this awesome black stallion. He is my...

    I often sit in my office alone with my thoughts.

    I become stressed when there is too much commotion in my personal space. Maybe I am an introvert.

    Night Owl...

    Even though I 'know' I don't get enough sleep - but I enjoy the middle of the night b/c it is calm, quiet and peaceful :)

    The Lake

    During the spring and summer I go to a lake north of where I live. I've written about it in other posts. It isn't always quiet, but is quieter than some places. I like to go there with my camera and get away from the world for a few hours. Walking in the woods, looking at the...

    I love to walk along a long beach,

    but my favourite places are in the Pyrenees. The volcanoes of the Massif Central are intriguingly calm and attractive too!

    This is one of the reasons I may never have

    children. I like it quiet. I like to be able to think and meditate. I enjoy going into deep thought.

    We went to have a shoot a little outside

    Bangkok today. We left at 6am, took us around an hour to get there. It's now 23:35 Bangkok time and I just got back at the hotel. Stretching my legs. I'm telling you, it was AMAZING. So apparently, we were shooting at an international university, ABAC. The minute you entered...

    I Don't

    I don't like quiet and serene places, I love them.  Absolutely adore them! I imagine a large part of my admiration for such places is my introvert personality.  But it goes even deeper than self. I grew up in the northern woods of Minnesota in a time when you still...

    I'm sitting in our church,

    I love it here! The only sound is the rapid flickering of the candles. What could be making them flicker so? Is that you? I wrote you a letter last night. Is that weird? Do you know what I am thinking? Maybe writing it out is more for me. I miss you. Thinking about the first...

    Where I'm from, there is a small beach

    where I'm from and its very secluded. You cant even hear the road a few yards away. Its just a small sliver of the coast line but the aura around the place is so quiet. Its a very nice place to meditate and very hard to find. Its in a small island called Guam and in the village...

    A forgotten part of the park.

    Your room. That spot/corner in the library or bookstore. That seat in class by the window. There's tons of quiet and serene places, but even the loudest place can have a fragment of serenity. I hate concerts, they're loud. But another might think they're peaceful, or...

    to because it's located in the Appalachian mountains, and I am literally surrounded by mountains, trees, lakes and waterfalls. It's an absolutely beautiful place and if I feel the need to get away, I can just hop in my car and drive for a few minutes until I find a trail, and...

    I Can Be High Strung

    It just seems right, great even. I don't mind walking alone. I am content to browse pretty parks and enjoy the landscape they provide. I love old cemeteries. Nothing scary there to me. I've been alone most of my life and it's OK. Really. If you are afraid and lonely, don't...

    My Home Sate

    I miss my home state, all the nature, the peace and quiet, the birds, the breeze, the trees and leaves, all the poetry that would flow like the river or creek. I could sit under a tree in the forest and watch little critters scurry and birds soar. I could go in a row boat in any...

    250 acres of unspoiled property. It's great to get away from the hustle and bustle of the big city and just ... breathe some fresh air, clear my head, recharge, forget about the stressors in my life.

    Nature's Bliss

    My favorite place on earth is a creek that I use to play in as a very small child. The creek had a bridge that went across it and there was also a tire swing that hung down. When the older kids would play on the swing I would stand on the bridge and feel the sun flicker on my...

    They Are So Few These Days

    I seek out the quiet places.  I hunt for them.  the tumult and chaos of the world reaches so far into the places that were once quiet.  It almost seems at times, that one has to take a row boat to the center of the ocean to escape it all.  I'm getting quite...

    Special Places

    When I was a little girl, I often enjoyed wandering off by myself to my "special place". More often than not, it wouldn't be much to anyone else, but to me, it was perfect because it was serene and quiet. It seems the older I get, the less often I find my special place.I live...

    there is a glacial erratic (huge boulder left from last ice age) in the state park near where I live. It is the most serene place I know. I can only get there by kayak and it takes me about 45 minutes to paddle there. After climbing the hill I then climb up on the rock it's about...

    Give Me A Quiet Place Anytime.

    Nothing beats being away from the noise and hustle and bustle of crowds. I'd rather be somewhere quiet, the woods, mountains a gentle meadow. It's like a piece of heaven on earth. Being there with a special person is even better.

    Sometimes, it is just nice to be where it is quiet, serene, and peaceful..a place to be able to think, to plan, to reflect on where I've been, where I am, and where I want to be. Just listening to the water, the sound of my footsteps on the earth, the crunch of the grass and/or...
