Sanctuary and Retreat, the key words that go so well with your lovely picture, Ash:)

A lovely photo, especially in light of the quote. It is quite serendipitous to read it today as I needed the reminder to take some quiet time.

Jeevan said...

Well captured the phrase, Ash! Lovely

Ash said...

Ev, Susan, Cloudia, Rahul - So I'm not the only one who thinks this photo seems to project stillness. Thank you!

Niran - Totally agree with you! It's a gorgeous old building. In fact, it's construction started in the 15th century.

Emm - Awww...I'm so pleased to hear that! Thank you!

Jeevan - Thank you!
