Wordless Wednesday

Say nothing …




I spent the weekend in a little cabin in the woods.  There was firelight.  There were books.  There was wine and good food, and better company.  

I walked in a woods dusted with snowflakes, over a carpet of furry wet ferns.

I rested.

And I come away from that time with a renewed respect for silence — for sitting still and making space for the magic.

In response to that, I’ll be implementing a new feature here on the blog:  Wordless Wednesdays.  If you’re a reader who’s new to WordPress, please know that I’m not the first to come up with the idea; in fact, there are many great bloggers sharing beautiful images, sans explanation, at the midpoint of every week.  But the photos I post here will be (as always) my own.  

I’ll try to share shots that strike me as provocative, but which I can’t yet pin down into language (and maybe I don’t want to).  If you’d like to respond to them or build on them in some way, feel free to do so in the comments section.  Or don’t…


Either way, I hope you find space to take a breath and drink in some wonder. ❤

    That feeling of detaching from society from time to time, is exactly what i’m looking for and started writing about. Ironically i’m writing about it in a social blogging platform.

    I’m on a 1000 trip quest to Everest, and i’m definitely going to adopt the Wordless Wednesday =]

    hope you have a chance to check out my blog 😉

  2. I adore the quiet and I endeavor to get at least a little quiet every day. Those around me who are less introverted sometimes don’t understand, but that’s alright. 🙂 I love your Wordless Wednesday idea – I can’t wait to see more of your photos!

    • I love that goal, Calista: a little quiet every day. :). I think that’s beautiful for introverts, extroverts, and everybody who falls someplace in between. 🙂

      Here’s to being comfortable with silences — and to believing that the magic has a way of filling them. 🙂

  3. Refreshing! I’m also coming to the realization that I need to build some space for stillness and silence in my filling-up life. There’s no way to appreciate the vibrancy and abundance of the fullness without it.

    It makes me smile to know that you had such a centering, wholehearted weekend. Welcome back!
