It’s The Little Things: Tranquil Moments

“Like water which can clearly mirror the sky and the trees only so long as its surface is undisturbed, 
the mind can only reflect the true image of the Self when it is tranquil and wholly relaxed.”
- Indra Devi -

Sometimes we need to slow down, disconnect from the fast pace of life and enjoy some tranquility. My favourite place to rejuvenate my soul is by the water. With my favourite person.


What brings you tranquility?

  1. We live by the beach, so to me that means tourists. My tranquil place is the mountains. Nuthin' like that fresh, clean mountain air.

  2. I agree nothing like looking over water or sitting on the deck of a home in the Smoky Mountains........

    1. And there was no wind that day, which made this area that much more special.

  4. For me, it's sitting slack-jawed in front of the computer surfing the net. Hey, to each their own!

  6. So many things: A sleeping or nursing baby, falls, rivers, soft music, autumn, driving on country roads, windmill, snow flakes... so many more things!

    1. All beautiful! And yes, so many more. All we need to do is slow down and enjoy them.

  7. I think my number one spot for tranquility is beside water ... away from the crowds.

    My number two choice is being somewhere where the scenery is fantastic, nice trees, flowers, plants - just to re-connect with nature can give inner peace.

    All the best Jan

    1. That is wonderful. Reconnecting with nature is another favourite of mine. Good choice.

  8. I like to walk in the densest woods far away from anything where I will not meet anybody. Or I could sit on a stam bank for a long time.

  9. Being near the water is so therapeutic.
    Another way for me is getting lost in our garden, like I just did this past hour.

    1. Being near the ocean is the best place. The view, the sounds, even the smell...all beautiful.

  11. For me, a long walk at an uncrowded beach, or a walk in the quiet, cool forest, evergreen needles under my feet. :). I love this photo!

  12. Sounds like a wonderful place to be! I enjoy the peacefulness of playing the piano and working in my flower garden. When I'm playing the piano I can think and express my own emotions (and hopefully to some extent, those of the composer) in my music. I think Victor Hugo said, "Music expresses that which cannot be put into words and that which cannot remain silent."

    1. What a lovely comment, Bethany. That is a great quote from Victor Hugo. Music is a language all on its own. And a beautiful one at that.

  13. Like you being near the water...or silence with only leaves in a tree fluttering, it's so beautiful ;)
