Serenity can take many forms. To feel serene is to be calm, peaceful and untroubled.
Sun, sand, sea and a deserted beach to share with your dog and loved one. It couldn’t be more serene than this. Or could it?
Maybe your idea of serenity is to be with a good friend and be gently punted along the Avon River on a calm autumn day.
To be surrounded by the beauty of nature brings a serenity to my heart as the sun reaches down into the rainforest and highlights the moisture in the air.
“It is not so much for its beauty that the forest makes a claim upon men’s hearts, as for that subtle something, that quality of air that emanation from old trees, that so wonderfully changes and renews a weary spirit.”
– Robert Louis Stevenson
To stand on the edge of a lake and watch as the first light of morning tips the peaks with a soft pink glow and the mist gently rises from the lake. All is silent, for a brief moment the air is still, before the first bird heralds the dawn.
“Nothing that is can pause or stay;
The moon will wax, the moon will wane,
The mist and cloud will turn to rain,
The rain to mist and cloud again,
Tomorrow be today.”
– Henry Wadsworth Longfellow
Keep looking up! I learn from the past, dream about the future and look up.
There’s nothing like a beautiful sunset to end a healthy day.
This week the WP photo challenge is to show serenity in a photo. I hope you are now feeling relaxed and calm after looking through these images.
