photoblog image I Found Paradise

I Found Paradise

 

This is the little cabin in Boone, NC, where I stayed alone for two days. Days I travelled, spent late evenings contemplating life from the porch, looking at the creek (below), and going to bed (no TV or computer) not long after night fell. I felt at home in the first five minutes. Of course I will be back next year.

 

I hope you find, or have found, your earthly paradise.

 

 

To give thanks in solitude is enough. Thanksgiving has wings and goes where it must go. Your prayer knows much more about it than you do.--Victor Hugo

I understand your feeling - what a wonderful place in the midth of nature where you hear only the birds and the creek rushing - recreation pure for the soul! I have found some earthly paradises, one of them is my home.
Larry Bliss: If your home is your paradise, you are fortunate indeed.
Sounds like a wonderful place to recharge one's batteries Larry
Larry Bliss: It is. I plan an annual trip. It's not expensive at all.

You must often go back there is spirit, Larry
Larry Bliss: Yes I do. I am there now as I write this.
The trickling stream would add much to contemplation time.
Larry Bliss: I listened to the water and discovered the sound had at least three different rhythms.
Ah Larry - what a wonderful peaceful place indeed! I've been to Boone... a beautiful piece of our country!
Larry Bliss: It is lovely up there, although the traffic leaves something to be desired...
