  1. Beautiful photo Sandra to reflect the line and from one of my favourite programmes, almost as engaging as Endeavour. And we do have some great Australian dramas but different styles of production.

  2. I do love a noir type mystery. Silence is golden ( sometimes)

  4. It seems you have a horde of ‘loners’ reading your blog Sandra. Silence is my favourite sound, being alone is my favourite time. I’m secretly a mountaintop dwelling hermit……

  5. Yes, yes! I would categorize myself as a loner who likes company. 😉

    One of the things I love about living where I do is that often the only sounds I can hear are the gurgling of the stream and the songs of the birds.

  7. That’s a lovely photograph and quote. Though of course it’s an inner silence. Walking along the beach the sound of the sea is so soothing.

  9. Wonderful. It reminds me of something someone said after moving to the desert in Morocco. Firstly, you think it’s completely empty, but then after you’ve lived there for a while you realise it’s absolutely teeming with life and interest. Have a lovely Sunday.

    • I think that was in a programme with Ben Fogle visiting a woman called Karen who has created an Artitst’s Retreat. I have only just watched it on iPlayer and have been fantasizing about going there – just need to pluck up the courage to consider the journey, it sounds a bit grueling. Once there I’m pretty sure I would LOVE it.


  10. I agree, silence is my favourite “noise”. Very hard to achieve though, if I listen carefully right now I can hear the central heating and some very quiet church bells.

  11. I *completely* empathise with that quote… And even more finally, you come to need it and crave it.
