Work has been crazy busy lately, and I have had a nasty headache for two days, so I thought it would be nice to post a photo tonight that promotes a sense of peace and quiet and restfulness. Although there are quite a variety of things that make me feel peaceful, when I thought back on our recent trip to South Carolina, many pictures immediately came to mind. I guess it’s because I have always loved the water, so looking at any photo taken by the ocean washes away all of my stress and makes me sigh in happiness :). I think that might even be my blogging theme for the next few days because it was really hard to decide which photo to share. I’m not even totally sure why the following shot makes me feel peaceful, but I think it is just the fact that the feather is totally free and undisturbed.
Now, for a little bit of humour. I guess everyone has different views on this subject because I asked my hubby if this picture makes him feel peaceful, and he said (with a big grin on his face), “No! It makes me feel irritated because I think it’s going to tickle me when I’m sleeping, or it’s going to land in my drink, and I will have to fish it out. Or it’s going to make someone sneeze. It’s just an irritating little bastard no matter how you look at it!” He says that the only thing that makes him feel peaceful is a row of 5 cent machines at the casino with him sitting in the middle and nobody on either side of him to annoy him, and he’s playing a bonus round. LOL!!
So, what kind of a scene, in a picture or experienced in real life, makes you feel relaxed and serene?
