Wednesday Vignettes: Tranquility

November 1, 2015, fall drive 011


“We are not going to change the whole world,

but we can change ourselves and feel free as birds.

We can be serene even in the midst of calamities

and, by our serenity, make others more tranquil.

Serenity is contagious.

Swami Satchidananda

“It is in your power to withdraw yourself

whenever you desire.

Perfect tranquility within consists in the good ordering of the mind,

the realm of your own.”


Marcus Aurelius

  1. Fall is such a beautiful time of year! Wonderful photos, indeed!

  2. The Parkway is looking pretty these days!

    • We love driving through our ‘color tunnels’ and are drawn to drive this lovely road as often as we have the opportunity. Leaves are raining down every minute; yet there is still such beauty!

We always appreciate your comments. Thank you for adding your insight to the conversation.
