Neat... contrasting colors and tones are beautifully managed with blur in the background. Nice job once again!

I agree,- to some extent.
The stillness full of words unspoken and shifty glances; that's poison to me.
The picture with its soft shades and delicate color tones, almost not present. Its a shere beauty.

Lovely. I enjoyed the photo and the thought.

Pick a Peck of Pixels is my photo blog with a difference -- I am hoping you are the difference. For this blog to be famous and me written about in the Wall Street Journal like I was in the seventies, will require more than a couple of dozen hits a day. If 10,000 visitors leave comments then it is instantly famous and your comments are part of history. Lets Make History.

I've gone on two silent retreats. They are among the most enriching of experiences. Silence is when you can hear the most.

Thanks for the comments everyone!

It's a bowl of scented pot-pourri which I keep on my desk.
