"When was the last time you spent a quiet moment just doing nothing - just

 sitting and looking at the sea, or watching the wind blowing the tree limbs, or

 waves rippling on a pond, a flickering candle or children playing in the park?"

--Ralph Marston

Enjoyed your quote... I've been doing a lot of quiet moment nothings this past month of winter....it's been bliss!

A few weeks ago when our grandson was visiting, he took a nap on the sofa. I sat for along time watching him sleep. So sweet, so precious, such a gift from God, so glad to be Gran!

Today was too quiet surrounded by the snow falling and the wind blowing for most of the day. I finished my book and need another. Hope you had a good day!

I'm doing rather less than normal these days, as the hours are regulated by naps, medication, small walks and more naps. It's actually has its benefits!

I could watch the sea for a very long time. It's nice to find some time to do these things. xx

Can't remember...though I have found myself staring into space without a thought in my head. That can't be good.

Such a lovely quote, let me think......last November on vacation in Hilton Head.

Doing nothing - we don't have enough moments to just do nothing do we?

I often think of myself as an ant working in the ant hill....always with something to do.

Love the quote, it has been a long time since I sat and did nothing but relax and watch life go by. That is not right.

Yesterday....I love creating moments of contemplation and introspection. I treasure these moments. Your setting here is just perfect for that : )
Hugs,

Good question. I must remind myself that to sit and contemplate and enjoy...is a good thing!
