River at night

Quiet waters run deep
Laval, QC, November 2010

When the planet spins too quickly for me, I like to get away. It's a luxury I can rarely afford, as my schedule these days is often impossibly jammed. But if I can grab a few minutes to yank myself off the grid, I try to find places like this. They remind me to slow down a bit. Maybe soon...

Your turn: How do you slow down? Why?

I love taking pictures of the water at night and in the morning.

Very nice.

I often slow down on rivers--love to hike, canoe, ski, sail... Lovely photo.

Soothing! A very tranquil scene enough to make anyone relax.

Hi Carmi, what a beautiful way to slow down. I slow down by watching the sunset whenever possible. I take time to reflect on my blessings and offer a prayer of gratitude... then I inhale the sunset and take a few photos before it drops out of sight.

Have a wonderful weekend, cheers.
