    Life Goes On Long After The Thrill Of Living Is Gone

    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...

    I'd have to say my favorite "quiet" place would

    be one of the few Japanese gardens we have in the city. Mornings are nice. Right when it opens. You have the older men and women come for their morning walk/yoga, don't make as much noise as the photographers and families. I love sitting at the end of the garden. At the edge of...

    Sitting in the dark to the glow of the screen

    as the strange thunks in the refrigerator crack randomly, I hear nothing else but the soft, rhythmic sounds of my family sleeping. How strange it feels to be in this moment How rare a treat this is. The ice cubes flip out interrupting my perfect silence. I sit frozen because i...

    I love God's Land. It mountains,

    hill, forests, river, The serenity of the Alps, to the quiet hum in the forests. I adore anywhere where human or mechanical noise is not present.

    Some people feel most alive surrounded by

    people, noise, activity. Without the frantic pace of a man-made world conducting their heartbeat, they feel listless, lifeless. I can understand that, I suppose. I feel most alive in the quiet. My heartbeat conducted by my connection with this world and those who have walked...

    An opportunity for me to think,

    to clear my mind, reflect. Sometimes in these places, I don't even wanna think. I just want the beauty of it all to control me & my emotions. A place of solute.

    Serene and quiet places have always been the

    best for me because they are great for thinking. I don't have to struggle against the noises in the background and the constant interruptions from people trying to get my attention. I can just let my mind effortlessly glide from one thought to another, which can only be...

    I seem to always be making comparisons in one way or another...analyzing, assessing,trying to figure things out, trying to keep my thoughts together, so why should today be any different? I've come to realize why it is that I am so enamored by the ocean, by water...it's because...

    I'm blessed to live in an area of serene

    and quiet places. There is water everywhere. The gulf is about ten minutes away. There are ancient rivers and streams that flow into this gulf that are less than a mile away. Then there's all the swamps (sometimes dark there) and brackish bays. I'm literally surrounded by water...

    I don't like noise places,

    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...

    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...

    Granite Quiet

    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...

    When we live among so many people all thoughts,

    oppinions and emotions mix up.Some of the things we feel are negative or positive affects of ppl surrounding us.To know who we really are,what we really think when there's no oppinion but ours we need a peaceful place. :)

    Outdoors, alone, and quiet places ease my mind,

    after a bad or good day, they clear all pain and suffering.

    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.

    Some days I would rather curl up with blankets,

    So hubs has left for work

    and I'm sitting on my porch chain smoking; a cup of coffee in hand, dog at my feet, watching a spring storm slowly roll in and listening to the birds heralding in a new day. I think my joy is coming back. I think I will be okay.

    I think this is how more

    than a few horror movies started though... And I hate how modern mobile phones don't let you take a picture with dark atmosphere even if you want to, this was just after sunset and seriously creepy to come into in middle of the forest :)

    Those are places I really can be myself,

    where I can calm down, where there's peace. There is one place in particular I always go when I need to be alone. I live near a big forest, where rarely Anyone comes. It's my secret place, my hideaway.
