This place is quiet


The quest this week is to capture a quiet place,  somewhere where you are able to unwind and softly come apart at the seams. For me this has has to be the world of books. For when I read, the noise of life disappears, only my imagination and the words I am holding matter. I am me.

 There are days when solitude is a heady wine that intoxicates you with freedom.

Your images are always deliciously inviting!

Dear Milena-thank you so much for visiting my blog and spreading the word about the (very silent) gendercide in India. Our awareness counts.
