Time - Out and About

"Take care of the minutes, for the hours will take care of themselves." 
Lord Chesterfield

Linking to
GOOD FENCES






"We went down into the silent garden. 
Dawn is the time when nothing breathes, 
the hour of silence. Everything is transfixed,
 only the light moves."
Leonora Carrington



"In silence, suddenly, it seems as if all the windows of the world are thrown open, and everything is as clear as on a morning after rain. 








Silence, ideally, hums.  It changes the air. 



In Tibet, where the silence has a tragic cause, it is still quickened by the fluttering of prayer flags, the tolling of temple bells, the roar of wind across the plains, the memory of chant."
Pico Iyer, "Silence" Tropical Classical




If you had a wall like this, 
wouldn't you line owls from one end to the other as well?



"The owl he was saying, is one of the most curious creatures.
A bird that stays awake when the rest of the world sleeps.
They can see in the dark.
I find that so interesting,
to be mired in reality when the rest of the world is dreaming.
What does he see and what does he know
that the rest of the world is missing?"
M.J. Rose















Times flies all too quickly, so enjoy every second of it!
and take good care of you!

Silence is a gift. And too many owls would be barely enough.
