Abstract 179

After the activity of the festive season,  a little quietness and calm seems appropriate.

Shades of grey …. with a hint of blue

I had toyed with calling this post Fifty Shades of Grey, but the connotations of that title, following the notoriety of the best selling book, would defeat my purpose.

Grey is a much maligned colour, often referred to as dull and drab.  In truth it can be a colour of great subtlety and calm.  Even within the palest shades there can be a quiet, inner vitality.

It is a beauteous evening

It is a beauteous evening, calm and free,

The holy time is quiet as a Nun

Breathless with adoration; the broad sun

Is sinking down in its tranquility;

The gentleness of heaven broods o’er the Sea.

William Wordsworth

When the weather is being obnoxious  –  as during the past two weeks  –  I sometimes take comfort from pictures taken last summer, such as this simple scene from Carbis Bay.  It exudes peace and quiet as the blue sky reflects in the wet sand.
