This is quite lovely. I also like the bit on your page about the meaning of Serendipity, its very nice :)
freewrite, thank you for your kind words. I read your blog, and tried to comment there, but the comments don't work. It sounds like you have a lot to write about, and you have a nice turn of phrase. Keep going. I'll check back--I hope you can fix those comments!
so true, so true. all my epiphanies (a grand total of...two)(maybe three) arise from such situations. :)
I have to learn that..If I am away..I can do it..which is so rare..If at home..there is an energy and sense of I must be doing something:(I would love to change that about me.Tell us about the lovely photo?
Grace, me too! I find it so hard to quiet my mind enough to hear. When I do, it's a perfect example of serendipity.Monique, the photo is my husband, in France, near the Lac de Gurson. I was painting with a friend, and Dan joined us to read in the shade. I caught him in a quiet contemplative moment, and thought that this photo was perfect with the quote.
Reflecting about the quote finds me tearful as I realize the summer has pretty much moved on, school is back in session, and I don't remember a quiet, thoughtful moment. It seems as though I must always be doing something...mostly work....I must make a change.
Ah, Kate, don't we all do this to ourselves? I think that's why I was drawn to this quote so much. And to the photo of my active, never-still husband in a quiet moment. But you can change the word 'summer' in the quote to 'autumn' or 'winter' or 'chilly' or 'sunny' or 'happy' or 'difficult' or even 'busy'. It still works.
