Weekly Photo Challenge: Serenity

Serenity (noun):
The state of being calm, peaceful, and untroubled. – The Daily Post

This is right up my alley, right? Honestly, Tranquil Dreams could have very much also been Serene Dreams.  It just didn’t appeal to me as much.  When you see the word Serenity in Chinese on any items in stores, you are looking at a part of my Chinese name.  Isn’t that nifty?

Anyways, enough of my rambling.

Despite my blog name, I am not very serene because I’m a worry-wart.  Where do I get away from these things? Thats where my hiking trips come handy. Nature is where I find this. Nothing quite beats being engulfed in nature, surrounded by trees and especially bodies of water: streams, rivers, lakes, seas, oceans…you get the idea.  I just love the sound of water.  Its so calming.

Finally, I don’t get hiking every day so my constant serenity comes from my sleeping cat.  She purrs *really* loud (more than normal) and she just calms me down when she does.  Its a little weird but it helps me sleep. So, here’s a little bonus picture…finding her under the covers.
