Sunday

Away from the Crowd

Get away from the crowd when you can. Keep yourself to yourself, if only for a few hours daily.

Hi Kerri, Very nice post. Arthur Brisbane is on to something. In this fast paced world it is all too rare to see someone who can sit quietly and peacefully for just a few minutes without being busy doing something. And yet being quiet and peaceful can do wonders for all parts of our being. At least it's true for me. Thank you, as always, for another wonderful post and have a good Sunday!

Hmmm....Yeah, for a little while. But more importantly, in my opinion, is making sure the "crowd" you're with is a good crowd!! LOL The photo looks like he's getting away from a questionable bunch!! ^_^

Beautiful image. I love the impression of freedom that images of birds in flight always gives. Good lord - what a clunky sentence that is. Sorry :-)

We are enabled to recover something of ourselves when we experience times of solitude.

Thank you for the quote and the beautiful photograph!

Happy day!

Reminds me of Jonathan Livingston Seagull by Richard Bach.

Yes, that bird would definitely not be me. Always doing my own thing. Besides, those other birds are hogging the whole rock! LOL!

You can see so much more in nature when you are alone and quiet. Thanks for the reminder.

Great shot. I saw LOTS of sea gulls at the lake today. Unusual to see them there.

Your image and quote are a perfect combo!
I saw on Oprah that quiet time by yourself makes you happier. :)

Oh, Kerri, I love the gold tinges on the water in this one!
Very little solitude does me, though I do love a half hour of quiet and a cuppa when I get in from work each day!

I couldn't agree more with that quote. And you've chosen a great image to illustrate the sentiment!
