Friday Photo: Mum Is The Word!

Services for Real Estate Pros with Napa Consultants

After all the celebrations of the last two weeks, we are welcoming the silence of the weekend. It was quiet on the freeway as I went into town, this morning.  The revelers and tourists are on their way home. It is the time of quiet reflection for many of us.


Meditation is the silence between the thoughts that gives us a feeling of peace and clarity.  It is like pausing between breathing in and breathing out. It is the practice of mindfulness.  The words of Thich Nhat Hanh express it perfectly.


There are many ways to come back to the here and the now,

to touch life deeply.

But they all involve mindful breathing.

If we're anchored in our mindful breathing,

we can practice anytime.

Thich Nhat Hanh



Mozart had his own interpretation also, many year ago,


The music is not in the notes, but in the silence between.

Wolfgang Amadeus Mozart


Wishing you all a great weekend!

Silence is a wonderful gift.  I plan a similar weekend.  Heavy rains are forecast for tomorrow, with more rain predicted for several days.  I plan on hunkering down, doing a little reading, log burning, and contemplation.

Morning Alexandra.

I suffer from tinnitus, therefore there is never any true silence.  Sigh

Hello Alexandra and Ron - it does seem a bit more quiet the last couple of days - "mum" must be a part of the picture.

I like a slower pace in life, going along with the hustle and bustle every day gets tiring, haha.  I hope that your weekend is being enjoyed!

We are finding it so rewarding to meditate each day. It seems to set the pace for the rest of the day. This is the time for much reflection and gratitude.
