Q – Quietude!

A to Z Challenge – Nature and I

I love the feeling when the mind wanders and rests at the same time – Pragalbha Doshi

Being immersed in nature, away from people, work and gadgets, is the best gift one can give to self. Reflective solitude in the lap of nature is absolutely therapeutic. Tuning into the flow of nature, being mindful of the present, heeding a listening ear to the little sounds around, can be a profoundly gratifying experience.

In an age of speed, I began to think, nothing could be more invigorating than going slow. In an age of distraction, nothing can be more luxurious than paying attention. And in the age of constant movement, nothing is more urgent than sitting still. – Pico Iyer

For today’s challenge, I am sharing a few pics from my archives where I love to spend time in quietude!

silent dialogues

visceral epiphany

natural recharge

A perfect place to spend time in reflective solitude!
Watching the clouds drift by!
Observing the buzzing bees at work on the beautiful bloom.
Gazing at the slothful blue!
Relaxing under the green parasol
Freezing conversations at the peak!
Listening to their fishy tales:)
Twilight tidings!
Bidding the sun adieu for the day
Admiring its bewitching smile
