Water Dragon Weekly Sunday Post: Silence

The Sound of Silence

“Hello darkness, my old friend

I’ve come to talk with you again

Because a vision softly creeping

Left its seeds while I was sleeping

And the vision that was planted in my brain

 Still remains

 Within the sound of silence.”


(*”The Sound of Silence”, written by Paul Simon, recorded by Paul Simon & Art Garfunkel in 1964)  

Silence, quiet and stillness, seep slowly from our busy bright day into night,

as light leaves our environment and darkness covers everything we see.  

Darkness, our old friend.  Not to fear, but to delight in the enveloping cocoon of silence and rest; a quiet time of day.  

A time for renewal of spirit, refreshing the senses and resting the muscles from the day’s work.  Silence.  

A chance to think, speak, a time to listen to others.

The sound of silence…..

*”The Sound of Silence” was written in the aftermath of the assassination of President John F. Kennedy.

Weekly Photo Challenge: Friendship II

I tried to find this photo for the challenge and it turned up in my husband’s computer!  So here’s my Friendship ll photo!

 Though miles may lie between us, we’re never far apart, for friendship doesn’t count the miles, it’s measured by the heart.

At the beach with Gail on St. Simons Island, GA.

  Good friends who don’t see each other often can pick up right where they left off the last time they met.  They can talk all day about what they’ve missed in each other’s lives.   But sometimes friends don’t need to talk at all.  They often share the same thoughts and feelings anyway.  Just sitting side by side, two good friends can enjoy each other’s company, the scenery, and searching for that elusive cormorant bobbing up and down in the waves of the St. Simons sound!!! 😉

In friendship,

Judy
