Q is quietness

The Franciscan monastery on the side of our mountain. The wall near the door to the chapel and grotto of John the Baptist bears the message below. Our forest, home to springs and many "holy places" (made holy by being much prayed in), is the perfect place to find that quietness, silence and solitude.

Quietness is perfect for Q, and your photo exemplifies the word. What a lovely place.

Dina said...

Yes, you are all right, it is a good place for quiet meditation.
Except when busload of pilgrims or tourists are there.


Leslie and Neva, welcome! Hope you visit again. Nice to meet you. Shalom.
