Weekly Photo Challenge: SERENITY

PI love it! As my friends said on the rustic sign they hurriedly hung on a tree in the wooded entry drive to their new house: SERENITY NOW!

My friends found — or attempted to create — their serenity in the Beautiful Berkshires of Western Massachusetts. For me, it’s more a case of — Serenity Now and Then! More of a moveable target, depending a lot on Serenity achieved by Serendipity. (Are the two really etymologically related? I have no idea. But one is certainly contained in the other.)

A trip a few years back to Acadia, that enchanted paradise in the heart of Maine, defined Serenity for me for quite a while. From the house that we stayed in:

Window on Acadia

to the Asticou Gardens:


Green Shade

these are a few of my souvenirs of Serenity. It was a magical visit.

    Emil, the Tin Man, wrote: oh……….how very lovely…….Monet and Matisse would have approved!

    Indeed Emil, I certainly hope so! Especially Monet — whose serenity is awesome!

    Yes, I am a Mainiac.

    What stunning views!

    As for the “SERENITY NOW” demand, heed the wise words of Seinfeld: “Serenity now – insanity later.” 🙂 [http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=Ow_9MglZrhs]

      Wow, Stef! You just solved a mystery we didn’t even know was a mystery!
      The Hub and I haven’t ever seen Seinfeld, so we didn’t realize — that’s why our friends named their house Serenity Now. I’m sure of it!
