I took this picture while strolling on the banks of River Thames near Hampton Court. It was dusk and all the tourists had left. Everything was very still and quiet and the river was mirror calm.
The first word that comes to my mind when I look at this picture is serenity. With the kind of stressful lives we lead, we all need stress busters and spending some alone time in quiet places is one of my favourite ways to beat stress.
Whenever I feel over whelmed and exhausted, I close my eyes and visualize myself walking through the mountains, through peaceful woods or on the banks of a river on a quiet evening… And I feel instantly calm !
I wish you all a very Peaceful and Serene year ahead !
