One of my favourite signs is from a lookout over the Grand Canyon.  It simply says, ONE MINUTE. DON’T READ. DON’T TALK. NO PHOTOS. JUST LOOK…..AND SEE. It is something that I hope you will do often when you visit our parks or other natural areas in Ontario.  But how about this variation?

shhh… a collection of silent moments

This slideshow requires JavaScript.

In the life of a Mom silence is a precious thing. I cherish the moments knowing that the moments will stretch into longer and longer times as they grow older.  (I try not to think too much about that…it brings sadness into my cherished silence.)
