A REALLY quiet corner
I guess you've noticed how quiet the Quiet Corner has been. One of my favorite quotes is from Wolfgang Amadeus Mozart:
"To talk well and eloquently is a very great art but an equally good one is to know the right moment to stop."
I'm thinking probably I should give this blog thing up but maybe I'll keep going a little while longer - can you stand the boredom? ha ha
I think I need my "meditation rock" to help me with this blog. In the picture above is me (at least I think it's me but I don't remember that dog - Nancy or Joe - can you help me out there?) In the foreground is a well - I'll have to tell you about the well sometime - but the square rock was a favorite place of mine to 'sit and ponder' for many of my young years. At some point mom and dad planted Rose of Sharon bushes on either side of the rock and it was a nice little quiet and shady spot to just sit and reflect. I don't remember - siblings, was the rock still there when we sold the house? - I don't suppose the new owners would let me come and sit in their backyard from time to time anyway. Maybe when it warms up I can sit on my backporch, listen to my windchimes and ponder away.
