Serendipity Experience 80: Treasure Tranquility!

8:11 PM

As I sit back relishing the long summer holiday break, I find myself with  time to reflect upon the year just past and to decide upon my goals and dreams for the year ahead. As I do so, I am increasingly aware of the importance of those tranquil, quiet moments which are all too rare amidst the daily routines and schedules.

Taking photographs has certainly inspired me to take the time to capture those  moments which are too fleeting and transient. Just to sit and appreciate the world passing us by and being so grateful to be part of it!

Wishing you all many moments of tranquility in 2012!
