A Quiet Moment

My favorite quiet moment comes when I go to bed. I start a ritual that I must repeat every day:  Say good night, rest, with a kiss to my loves…  Remove make-up and care the skin, preparing it for the next day… Get into bed among fresh, smooth sheets, take my e-book, my glasses and make the world disappear for a few minutes, until the dream invites me to turn off the light and sleep.

I’m sorry I don’t have a picture of the moment, but in pyjama, without makeup and wanting to disconnect, I’m not up for pictures.  So I’ll search for other quiet moments.

My nephew soon learned to enjoy a quiet moment, as he enter in a Neverending Story.

Surrounded by tourists who never stopped passing, but he, in his world of strokes, caught in his quiet moment

Calm waters that invite us to think… “We know, but sometimes we forget that we know, that nothing is forever” (From Adolfo Aristarain’s film “Common Places”)

Floating in transparent waters, the sound of the water, waves drawn around me… A quiet moment!

El paraguas que alegra los días de lluvia

An afternoon of rain, wet soil, gray sky, you hide under a multicoloured umbrella and enjoy a quiet moment

Amor bajo la lluvia

Embraced, we look at the city at our feet. A gray day that beside you is filled with light.


I shelter under your branches that welcome me, the sound of the strings creates music that envelops us.

  1. These are lovely Ana – although I do find myself picturing you in your jammies ready to invite sleep and refreshment for the next day. Loved that multicolored umbrella image. Great timing.

  2. Beautiful quiet moments! I’ll need a quiet moment when I get back from an outing with my son, daughter-in-law and two grands on their boat. Maybe then I can look for my quiet moment picts!


  3. Very nice. As I was scrolling down, the umbrella picture, before the umbrella part comes into view, looks like a deep water-filled canyon surround by forest canopy. This was an interesting happenstance.
