Cinemagraphs Lifestyle

Winter in Provnece

Life fell into a quiet pace. In the mornings I count the bell tolls while the angular winter light rakes across the crumpled bed covers. In the evenings the cry of the starlings marks 6pm as they dance to their symphony in the sky.

fireplace-provence-cinemagraph-615 The distant sound of a person’s footsteps on the quiet ancient streets, the soft ambience of rain outside my aged glass window plane. Most days nothing is happening. The stores have closed for the season, the visitors have gone home to Paris and on many of the restaurants old signs hang saying closed until April.

I go for long walks between the towns, the vista dotted with chimney stacks dancing with smoke. A dusty blue haze settles in before each sunset, a faint reminder of richer blues skies ahead.

It’s better than I imagined, the quiet after years of thriving on noise. Life noise, street noise, work noise. Manhattan just seems to constantly hummm. I used to be afraid of silence but now I find myself in it and it is there in the void where I can paint all the worlds I dream of.

As I work in the short hours of afternoon light I watch as it scans with each passing minute through the room I photograph in. It always seems to start with such gusto and by the time it reaches the last corner before slipping away it slows to a linger like taking that last sip of champagne.

The nights are illuminated by roaring fires and home cooked meals. For years I cursed the winter, I never knew it could actually be so warm. I watch the trees and the vines and the rosebushes rest… and I rest… because with spring awaits new wonders to discover .

    Simplicity. Cannot beat that.
    Interesting how most despise the wintertime, though forget to relish in the warmth so to speak. I live in a very small historic mountain town in which the silence is astounding at most points of the day. It allows for a much different perspective. It’s freeing, that peace. I am happy to hear that you are relishing in such a beautiful phase of your journey.

      After ending my last profession twelve month back, i’ve had some good luck to research this web-site which was a life-saver for me… They give work opportunities for which people are able to work on the internet from their home. My latest paycheck after working for them for four months was for $4500… Amazing thing about is that the only thing necessary is very simple typing skills and having access to internet…Read information about it here >> http://www.wzurl.me/Ouxcpw
