In my World, finding solitude is not always easy to achieve physically – my dear Himself and our children are always underfoot one way or the other 😉
I’ve learnt over time to create ways to be still and find inner quiet even when everywhere is abuzz.
I deliberately seek out pockets of moments to enjoy being by myself and to appreciate those moments.
Once, I told a friend that as a mother, to visit the shops alone and to shop quietly without the children is a vacation. Thus, I linger over a pot of tea/coffee, natter over nothing with strangers and come home humming with a gleam in my eye’s 🙂
Taking a quiet walk
Finding interesting things in my vicinity
One of my favourite Cafes’ in town. Sit and nurse a pot of tea, watch people, eavesdrop and listen to gossip 😉
On Thursday’s, I share pictures about ‘Echos of my Neighbourhood.
I would like to invite you to participate. The challenge is quite simple.
Every Thursday, share a photo of bits and pieces of wherever you are at any point in time. It could be a house, backgrounds of your neighbourhood, activities and so forth and you can tag it Echos of my Neighbourhood, add my link to your post so that I will get the ping from your post.
Every other Thursday, I will publish a post with the links of all those who participated the previous week.
This is just a fun way of getting to see more of the World around us through your eyes since we cannot all be at those places, we could, at least, see them through you.
These are some bits and pieces of my past week, from taking children to Shotokan-karate classes, work, dinner blah, blah running helter-skelter, my wheel of life keeps rolling.
I absolutely love vintage and antique stuff. Unfortunately, I don’t have the pocket to afford them, but at least I can enjoy a good look at them, so it was a delight to run into this vintage cafe, where I can go and satisfy my eyes with eye-candy and take loads of photos 😉
I am happy that this week which has been so and so for me is coming to a close. My emotions hurtled from one end to the other all week, but a warm evening spent last night in the ambience of beautiful, intelligent friends does make one feel a lot better 🙂
We e-zoomed around various neighbourhoods on our laptops, pads, phones, and got a peek into what lovely folks are doing.
Giggles and tales: So much beauty of nature, people and fat gorgeous Cows and Geese. I like 🙂
Rosses of Donegal: absolutely gorgeous and dreamy views of Rosses area in County Donegal in North West Ireland.
Don’t horde the beauty of the life around you, just for yourself. Do share with us

She is amazing at describing love and life in her poems. She creates such beautiful images with her words. Truly, she is a talented writer and I’m so excited to have her poetry book and to continue reading through it.
