Good morning. How are you? Not much like a blog introduction but let's skip formalities. You're among friends.

It's Friday and I'm ready to warm my fingertips with Five Minute Friday.

A Little Slice of Peace by Dana Pittman


Today's Topic: Quiet.

5 minutes on the timer. Music ready. Let’s….



Quiet at one time would have meant silence. Yet as I grow a little older, and hopefully a little wiser, quiet takes on many new forms.

Quiet on some days finds me sitting in the corner of the couch with a book and warm tea within reach.

Quiet may be me crocheting with music.

Quiet may be me waking early to sit in a silent house.

This quiet may have children arguing in the background. An agitated dog joining into the commotion. But in those moments this type of "quiet" provides a place for my being to exhale. To relax. A little slice of peace.

I believe today I'll treat myself to a cup of coffee, a book, and quiet. 😉



Question: What is quiet to you? Do you seek silence? Peace? Or all thee above?

    Hi Dana,

    I felt like I was sitting right beside you, thanks to your vivid descriptions. Weird how our definition of quiet changes as our family does. 🙂

      Hello, yes how things change. I call it the “get in where you fit in” moments. But I wouldn’t change it for the world. Thanks for visiting.
