Endless Rivers

of Hope

Colorful Leaves

In the Quiet,
I’m unheard, I’m unseen,
I can run, I can twirl,
If I want… I can scream.
Just me and my thoughts,
Far away from the crowd,
Dancing in color,
And singing out loud.

I wanted to whiz past “Q” tonight. I LOVE Quiet. I don’t think quiet is all about lack of noise either. It’s also about peace & tranquility—like quieting your mind. Quiet, for me, is also about solitude. It’s about delighting in your alone time, and enjoying your own company. If you can’t entertain yourself how can you possibly entertain others?!

I don’t know. Maybe it’s just old age. ๐Ÿ˜‰ There was a time when the quiet made me uneasy. I couldn’t relax unless I was in the middle of the action. Things have certainly changed!

Anyway, that’s about all for now. Thank you for reading! I’ll see you around soon for the letter “R.” Only nine letters left in the row…

Now back to the quiet I go.

    Quiet is so necessary…sometimes it takes me a minute to realize when it arrives, as the surroundings are usually full of noise.

    Quiet is beautiful. I can so relate to this as I’ve lived alone three years now since the D. Peace and quiet is so nice! โค๏ธ
