silence


The pause - that impressive silence, that eloquent silence, that geometrically progressive silence which often achieves a desired effect where no combination of words, howsoever felicitous, could accomplish it.
- Mark Twain

I took this picture last Thursday,
just after I woke up to get ready for work.
My boys were still asleep and I stood there,
taking the moment in.
Isn't the colour of the sky divine?
Now, it's after 11:00 p.m.
and our place is silent again.
Precious silence.
I'm content; I'm grateful.

=) I simply love the silence !
Beautiful and inspiring photo, Yiota ! And the most amazing thing is that the moon you see there is the same I see here and the same one all our bloggy friends around the world see, too ! Isn't it magical ?

Blessings,

What a sky! Lovely colour and that moon just about to go to bed - peace and quiet just for a moment before the day beigns eh?!

Will post your letter tomorrow - thank you so much.

I love how the moon is a similar place in my sky.... as in yours, so far away!

I love that time of day, the world seems so at peace with the promise of a fresh day ahead.

And I adore your photo - images like that make me yearn to return to Greece.

What a beautiful sight to see out your window as you begin your day. The sky is indeed a glorious shade of blue. I'm thinking I need to begin making a point of looking up at the sky in the morning before I stumble into the kitchen for my first cup of coffee. I'm apparently missing a lot.

Loving this beautiful moment, Yiota! Thanks for stopping by, and the cheer for my quilt. It was a labor or love and I can't wait to start a new one. Hope you have fun with your quilt projects. Happy Days! :O)
