Sometimes I just like to get away by myself and listen to the “Quiet of Nature”. I have found it difficult to get rid of all man made sound, those airplanes just keep flying. One of my favorite areas is the Lake Hope area of Vinton County.
If you want quiet early spring or late fall before hunting season is the best.
Decided to have a little lunch and “hang out” at the HOPE SCHOOL HOSE .
Put a blanket on the ground by those trees and spent a couple hours.. Man made noise= two cars and two planes. NOT BAD
I often go by myself. Linda likes to keep moving while I like to stop listen and do a little meditating. I will often contemplate :::
Lord, make me an instrument of your peace,
Where there is hatred, let me sow love;
where there is injury, pardon;
where there is doubt, faith;
where there is despair, hope;
where there is darkness, light;
where there is sadness, joy;
O Divine Master, grant that I may not so much seek to be consoled as to console;
to be understood as to understand;
to be loved as to love.
For it is in giving that we receive;
it is in pardoning that we are pardoned;
and it is in dying that we are born to eternal life.
A little time like this makes for some quiet quality time for me
Thanks Joe Todd
