Babbling brook…

Adopt the pace of nature: her secret is patience. ~Ralph Waldo Emerson

soothing brook…

The ‘brook’ is down, exposing a boulder here and there, the shoreline is gradually exposed as the water level drops…but, in the shade, the shaded spot offers a respite from the heat, a soothing sound and usually an upstream breeze to cool the sweat on the brow.

keeping the peace…

a quiet little place, well off the trail. If one can just sit, contemplate and unwind, it is a special little no name spot. One of many, up the Columbia River Gorge.

mountain brook…

“Our lives can be compared to beautiful streams, which are destined to flow, grow in majesty to create wonderful features such as cascading waterfalls, and give nourishment and life to those in its path.”         Inshan Meahjohn

Happy Chatter Distracts………….

“I chatter over stony ways,
In little sharps and trebles,
I bubble into eddying bays,
I babble on the pebbles.”

Tennyson’s Babbling Brook

The Brook…chatters and tumbles

photography--water-pool-rapids-SwittersB

I chatter over stony ways,
In little sharps and trebles,
I bubble into eddying bays,
I babble on the pebbles.

With many a curve my banks I fret
By many a field and fallow,
And many a fairy foreland set
With willow-weed and mallow.

I chatter, chatter, as I flow
To join the brimming river,
For men may come and men may go,
But I go on for ever.

Alfred Tennyson…The Brook

Life’s Pace & Our Awareness of What?

How often the mind is dancing about in some frenetic manner. If only we could slow down and enjoy. If only there was less going on and the pace slowed. Then what? Sometimes the pace slows a lot and the to do list evaporates. Suddenly you realize that it may not just be the pace. It may be a disconnection within regardless of the pace. Images like the one below are, for me, far beyond the visual beauty or composition. For me it elicits calmness and hopefully self reflection to be a better person. If I take the time to self reflect in honesty.

“Slow down and enjoy life. It’s not only the scenery you miss by going too fast–you also miss the sense of where you are going and why.”  Eddie Cantor

“In truth I suspect that merely slowing down is not a very satisfying answer. What I need has less to do with my pace of life than my peace of life. At any speed, I crave a deep and lasting inner peace. And if it’s solace I’m after, I don’t need to pace myself like a turtle, change jobs or set up house on a quiet island. It is usually frenetic living, not high energy, that robs my peace of mind.”   Steve Goodier
