It Was Noticeable



The stillness was so noticeable.  There wasn’t a hint of breath, nor did a branch move.

My mind looked on in wonder as the thoughts darted in and out, moving effortlessly and raging to a screaming crescendo echoed by the piercing stream of internal sound accompanied by the one that was real.

It was noticeable.  The dichotomy of the scene before me, the one I could see with my eyes but not quite reach with my soul, and the one that has been a constant companion, stitched to my side, unable to break free and handcuffed to my spirit.

It was noticeable.  All I ever wanted was to feel the peace and tranquility, live in the place of trust and truth, and not let any other sound, real or manufactured, break the blessed reverie of the scene placed before my eyes, the scene I had seen before, the place I remembered, the place I loved, the place I felt safe, and the place I felt love.

It was noticeable.

The sound got louder.

And it was noticeable.

  1. “All I ever wanted was to feel the peace and tranquility, live in the place of trust and truth, and not let any other sound, real or manufactured, break the blessed reverie of the scene placed before my eyes…” I can totally relate to this. Of course then something intrudes, but we can always return to these islands of wonder in the midst of whatever comes. ❤

    1. Ah! Yes!!! Bela 😁 I am learning how to come back to these places! I think I was so unaware FOR SO LONG…and now I am learning…sometimes it takes a little while…I was a much better student in school 😉 But it is such a beautiful thing to KNOW! And I love how this coincides with some upcoming changes that will be evident on my blog soon.
      Best wishes for you to always have the peace that nature instills in you. Much Love, beautiful soul 💜💜

  2. Your writing is so moving… and vivid…. I love the contrasts you have achieved here…. And the ending is beautiful… A place and a scene you had seen before: the deja vu, so to call it, is noticeable too…. (I have felt similarly… and something odd that occured me: It could have happened to me in unfamiliar “new” places)….
    Sending love & best wishes, dear Lorrie! 😀 ❤

    1. Your soul truly is so beautiful and I am so happy that after 5 straight days of rain, a rainbow appeared just in time to gift it to you! I get what you mean about deja vu…and it happening in “new” places.
      I’m so happy we have connected…thank you!! Much love and light back to you 💜💜

  3. We stand, sometimes, in the face of this tranquil magnitude. Our breast beating. Our lungs drinking the quiet. Our minds tumbling. Our histories unfurl into the quiet, and we feel ourselves bleeding across the edges that we’ve cultivated, feeling the proximity of eternity. All of it held by an immanent, palpable grace, as we stand upon the threshold, and see what always has been and always will be…

    Peace and Love to you, Lorrie,

  4. Although I sense some longing in this post, I am picking up on a message of clarity and realization.
    You are not numb, or dull (that’s the last word in the world I would use to describe you), you are aware.
    And beautifully so.

    1. Ah! What a beautiful message for me this Sunday morning, Harlon! Thank you for your caring soul and for the love that I can ALWAYS feel!
      May this day offer something delightful…something that tickles your fancy! (I’ve often wondered just where the ‘fancy is 😉!)
      Much love 💜💜


    1. Thank you, Helen 😊 I can feel the beauty in this wish and I’m so grateful! Life is full of beauty, and I am so happy to be able to connect to nature…it always soothes my soul no matter the chaos that may be erupting.
      Wishing you a week filled with beauty and love 💜


  5. This reads lovely, Lorrie. It is raining these days in my part of the world and with rain you know there’s so much going on in nature everything seems vibrant, clean and rejuvenated but that is what makes the impeding stillness so noticeable too. Inspiring work, as always. ❤ ❤ I think i might write a nature inspired post soon thanks to you.
    Hope you're doing well and in good health. 🙂

    1. I know what you mean…”everything seems vibrant, clean and rejuvenated.” Water cleanses…and when I feel I need to “move” something that is deep inside me…i visualize water running through my body…taking away the things that are not necessary. I look forward to reading your words 😉 Nature, in all its beauty, all its strength, and all its fury at times, is so full inspiration!
      Thanks so much for your kind words and well wishes. I am working every day on my health and i know its improving. Many blessings to you 💜
