Peace...

Have you ever read something that just made you relax into your chair and feel brim full of peace? I read a selection from a story yesterday which did just that...and then, because I hadn't been sleeping well at all, I took that feeling and went upstairs to nap. I seldom (maybe a couple times a year) attempt to nap during the day (it usually gives me a headache) -- but yesterday, I was out.

When I woke, I felt great -- I went to the gym and enjoyed the warm weather. And I slept okay last night too (not fantastic, but good enough).

Today, it's supposed to be close to 70 again (with snow chasing it either tomorrow or Thursday -- yikes)...but I can't nap today (it's yoga day).

How do you find those moments of complete peace?

I think the chocolate bar in her hand has something to do with it, too... ;-)

I was reading an online serial novel (the authors put out a chapter every month or so), and the MC was sick, so his family was caring for him and waiting for him to heal.

Water has some amazing properties, doesn't it? It can almost always calm me.

Looking at the ocean and listening to the waves does it for me. Unfortunately, I only see the ocean if I'm on vacation, sometimes.

Oh, looking at my nearby lake is almost as good.

As you can probably tell, I'm a water sign. :-)

I love the water too -- it can exemplify peace better than so many other things.

Oh they are hard to find but for me is usually that time when I can read in complete silence.

Interesting...I seldom read in silence -- in fact, I like having some background noise.

Love the photo! It's warming me up while I'm looking out at our the sleet coming down at this moment. I guess it's on the way over to you...

As in your picture, I spend time by water, preferably the sea, but a lovely river or woodland stream would do the trick too. *Sigh*. Can I go there now, please?

I know, wouldn't that be nice? :)
