In der vollkommenen Stille hört man die ganze Welt.

silent greetings

i "see" silence in the stooped over, snow covered brush bushes.

i "hear" the silence you are portraying here.

silence has been something that i have been actively contemplating and practising lately. it has brought much healing. your photos are part of the journey.

mi-ai adus o altă furtună de zăpadă, necunoscută mie, în vene.

Lovely, busy contrast to the mushroom!

Colleen: How’s the weather in your part of the world? Last I heard, there was another big storm moving in….


Susan: So I try … pretty close to the ground on some days ….


Isabella: Wann ich meine Stimme beruhigen kann, die ganze Welt mir spricht deutlich in die Stille … Dann glaube ich, die Stimme der Stille ist die Schönheit … Viele dank


Claire: So much spiritual practice around the world is in essence the pursuit of silence. We must learn to be quiet before we can hear….

Sorlil: From small and warm, to big and cold :-) ... and the whole world in-between....

Roxana: :-)

furtuna a fost necunoscută
în venele somnului nostru
înainte de a fi găsit ziua

zăpada s-a trezit pe pielea noastră
ca muzica rece a anilor de pribegie

That´s just like the people I saw at the bus stop.

Roxana said...

:-)

you know, the last two lines really sound like a genuine Romanian poem - in the first part there is some awkward feeling about them, difficult to put the finger on it (one could assume they are a translation from a foreign language). but the last two! perfect...

James Owens said...

Roxana: That you say so seems impossible, and I blush to think....

(but -- tell no one!!! --this is my ambition now, to be a Romanian poet!...)

James Owens said...

Chrome: I remember that bus stop picture! One makes it through the weather as best one can....
