Sunday Post: Silence

There is a place I go when I want to put or bring my spirit, my mind to silence, to stillness. This is THAT place. A place that moves me to silence.

Silence as defined in the dictionary.



absence of any sound or noise; stillness.

the state or fact of being silent;  muteness.

absence or omission of mention, comment, or expressed concern: the conspicuous silence of our newspapers on local graft.

the state of being forgotten; oblivion: in the news again after years of silence.

concealment; secrecy.

to put or bring to silence; still.

to put (doubts, fears, etc.) to rest; quiet.

Military . to still (enemy guns), as by more effective fire.
Hey friends – if you have a facebook page – would love it if you could click on this photo – then like it at D Photo Magazine’s July Phone Photo Comp !!!! Thanks.


  1. I can see why you go here to calm your spirit. There´s something about water and nature that does that, isn´t there? I always head for the seashore, too.

    Lovely images, Jo – well captured!


  2. Jo,
    A lovely series…and some interesting definitions for silence too. I guess my interpretation of silence as “neglect” comes under the “state of being forgotten”.


  3. I went to check out your post and it was gone…. Must have been naughty since it wasn’t even a day old 😉 Scary though how they can censor and remove content we feel is our own.


  4. It seems censored on New Zealand TV was censored from your site as well.
    What better place to post a comment than on this post: Silence!


  5. I can definitely see why you love that place, Jo, it’s beautiful and very special. Thanks for sharing these lovely photos…
    By the way, the link you posted to whatever “they” thought had to be censored had already disappeared by the time I got to read your post 😦


    1. It is special Didi. I lost the post more due to internet ans WP I think than any conspiracy. Just a glitch…hopefully I will get it sorted.


  6. Thanks Jo! Silence is a place where words hinder our awareness, thoughts confuse the path and expectations create a wall we can not cross. Silence is an art, an art of being, not doing. seeing not looking, expecting nothing, thus gaining all that is offered. Your images show this beautifully and silently, thank you.


  7. Silence is a wonderful place to be.. and the lake and within natures sounds is the best silence to visit… I always feel at One in Nature Jo.. as I listen to the silence of all the sounds we are surrounded by, that for some people they never hear them.. Sad….. Wishing you a good evening Jo.. ~Sue x
