In early January, my husband and I spent a glorious week in Hilo, on the Big Island of Hawaii.
The Silence of Leisure Spaces
We spent several days exploring the nearby beaches and waterfalls just enjoying the sounds of nature.
We sat and ate our lunch in silence and simply enjoyed the show the surfers and boogie-boarders put on.
To sit in silence at the shore, watch the waves and hear the surf, is to appreciate the very breath and heartbeat of the earth. – Doe Zantamata
A look at a spot near Rainbow Falls. We did a lot of walking to various locations, taking in the “noises” of leisure.
“Leisure is a form of silence, not noiselessness. It is the silence of contemplation such as occurs when we let our minds rest on a rosebud, a child at play, a divine mystery, or a waterfall.” – Fulton J Sheen
