The Aesthete's Alphabet - Q is for Quiet

For many of us, life is busy... chaotic....and....often noisy......which is why the prospect of QUIET is so appealing. Whether it's time spent reading or writing, gazing out to sea or gazing into a fire, in a bath or on a mountain, with a cup of coffee or a glass of wine, relaxing with our dogs or our cats.....we all need quiet time to empty our heads or collect our thoughts. These pictures epitomize quiet to me. I will leave you to enjoy them in peace.

So, my dear friends......go forth and be quiet!

Till next time
