Friday Finds ...

Be Still 52 - Still life moments

On my Flickr Photostream
Collective 52 Photo Project "2014"
Week 34 - Solitude

'Alleen zijn' ... tijd
voor reflectie en inspiratie,
om te lezen en na te denken,
om te genieten van de natuur,
om te genieten van de stilte,
om te dagdromen,
om ideeën op te schrijven in mijn notitieboek ...

'Solitude' ... a time for
reflection and inspiration,
reading and thinking,
enjoying the beauty of nature,
enjoying the quiet,
jotting down ideas in my notebook ...

Found this quote ...

In a soulmate we find not company
but a completed solitude.

~ Robert Brault

and this one by A.A.Milne

I have a house where I go,
When there's too many people,
I have a house where I go
Where no one can be;
Where nobody ever says "no"
Where no one says anything - so
There is no one but me.

Ik heb 'alleen zijn' nodig ...
En jij ... wat betekent het voor jou ?

I need 'alone time' ...
How about you ... what does it mean to you ?

Fijn weekend,
Have a nice weekend,

  1. I definitely need alone time to fuel my writing. Without time alone the voice in my head gets lost.

  2. A beautiful to present your alone time and I need my alone time also as I think a lot of us do. I am not much on writing but use my images and my blog for that purpose. Have a wonderful weekend Sylvia.

  3. Beautiful images of your notebook and I {heart} the quotes, Sylvia. Have a wonderful weekend. xo

  4. Ik ook hoor...fijn weekend liefs Ria..x !

  5. Beautiful thoughts beautifully illustrated !

  6. Your solitude images are lovely. I do need my 'alone time' too. I like to create when I am alone, take pictures or write in a journal. I agree with Sarah, I can't hear my own voice when too much is going on around me. Have a great weekend!

  7. Perfectly illustrated, and perfectly said, especially with Pooh's quote! I love this so much...yes, I must have alone and quiet time to keep me balanced. Love this!!

  8. quiet.... so perfectly illustrated.....
    really lovely still life moments sylvia....

    you amazing me...

    have a beautiful weekend... xo

  9. Beautiful images, bringing stillness and calm to all who see them. I have lots of quiet time and couldn't live without it.

  10. I discovered that I have been spending too much time alone as of late. The dread of returning back to work teaching made me go into hermit mode. I think there is a need to balance, which I need to find. I love the quotes...so perfect.

  11. Perfect images - I love the stillness and quiet feel of them - lovely.

  12. Very simple and beautiful images and perefect for "solitude!"
    I need alone time, too. But still love to have company - my kitties napping besides me :-)

    Happy Friday and have a wonderful weekend!

  13. Voor mij ook af en toe belangrijk Sylvia,mooie post weer....knap gedaan....fijn weekend,liefs

    ps,na een lange tijd weer terug in blogland....

  14. Well, first let me say that I love your journal photos. Great composition and exposure. Then let me tell you ... YES ... I need a bit of solitude every day to keep my sanity. But the flip side is, too much is not good, either. There needs to be a balance. So easy to say, so hard to do.

  15. Zo MOOI je foto's Sylvia!!!
    En jaaaaaaaa Sylvia, ook ik heb zeker alleen zijn nodig, inderdaad
    om te mijmeren, de geest heerlijk
    tot rust te laten komen. Bij mooi weer de wolken te bewonderen en er
    allerlei figuren in te zien. En
    ondertussen werken mijn hersenen
    op een wat lager niveau, en dat
    geeft veel nieuwe inzichten.
    Het liefste zou ik daarin niet gestoord willen worden, hihi.

    Geniet van een prachtig weekend,

    Lieve groet,

  16. So beautiful and serene page ... and the A. A. Miles quote says it so well :)
    Happy weekend to you, Sylvia!

  17. I must admit that for me too the solitude doesn't have a negative meaning, I see it as a moment of reflection, of dialogue with ourselves, of serenity.
    Thank you so much for these thoughts and for your always charming pictures, have a wonderful weekend dear Sylvia !
    With love

  18. Dear friend,
    I love the solitude choose, I do not like when it is imposed to me like now where I have to lie down and not go out ... but when I choose it so I really appreciate it! Hugs to you
