Quietude is a state of calmness, a place of stillness, in which the seeds of love, joy and peace may quietly grow, flourish and blossom.
~ Mary Anne Byrne ~


Every morning was a cheerful invitation to make my life of equal simplicity, and I may say innocence, with Nature herself.
~ Henry David Thoreau ~

  • Beautiful message from Richard Gere: "There's no time for anything else... It's life and no one escapes this living world. There's still time, so live for fun, maybe tomorrow is no more. Eat what you want, walk in the sun , bathe in the sea... Be crazy, be silly. There's no time for anything else...


  • Gardening is how I relax. It's another form of creating and playing with colors.
    ~ Oscar de la Renta


  • A garden is a grand teacher. It teaches patience and careful watchfulness; it teaches industry and thrift; above all it teaches entire trust.  ~ Gertrude Jekyll ~


  • You have to appreciate every single day that you're alive. Life is a little bit like a garden - you have to find time to plant the seeds for beautiful flowers to grow.
    ~ Oscar de la Renta


  • “A cat has absolute emotional honesty: human beings, for one reason or another, may hide their feelings, but a cat does not.”

    I will not rescue you for you are not powerless,
    I will not fix you, for you are not broken.
    I will not heal you, for I see you in your wholeness.
    I will walk with you through the darkness, as you remember your light ..

  • In silence we recognize the need to be at home with ourselves in order that we may go out to meet others, not just with a mask of affibility, but with real commitment & authentic love.

    Rest is not idleness, and to lie sometimes on the grass under trees on a summer's day, listening to the murmur of the water, or watching the clouds float across the sky, is by no means a waste of time.

  • 'Stepping onto a brand-new path is difficult, but not more difficult than remaining in a situation which is not nurturing to the whole woman.'
