Tranquility.  Mt Warning, NSW

Peace.  it does not mean to be in a place where there is no noise, trouble or hard work.  it means to be in the midst of those things and still be calm in your heart.  (author unknown)

This quote has been around for ages.  I have a mug with it printed on and a journal.  Whenever I read this quote, it returns me to centre and I stop and take a deep breath and feel grateful that someone out there was able to put my feelings into words.

As I write, you might think that I'm in a nice spiritual space, listening to some relaxation music, but in fact I have Neil Diamond's Hot August Night blarring!  You see, it works, there is much noise around me, but I am still calm in my heart! 

I'm going to see him in concert next week!  Welcome back Neil, you absolute legend!


  1. I love that quote Jane. I visited your blog very quickly last week and that quote returned to me over the weekend... amidst much chaos! I have no doubt I'll remember that frequently in the future! Georgie x

  2. Beautiful quote to remember especially when it can become very noisy here with my girls:) The photo is very calming and beautiful too. xo
