The Romance of Quietness

Would you call your life hectic? Do you run from alarm to lights out?

Such a pace is hard on your relationship. You can feel as though you’re on hamster wheels in separate rooms. Pick ‘em up, set ‘em down. Climb the tube. Scarf the food down.

Take a moment and listen. What do you hear?

  • Air conditioner?
  • TV?
  • Washing machine?
  • Cars in the street?
  • Plane in the sky?

What if it was suddenly quiet. Only non-manmade sounds.

  • Delicate voice of a mellow wind;
  • Birds or crickets;
  • Rustling of a chipmunk foraging for food;
  • Whoosh then silence of ocean waves.

In such a place you and your sweetheart could enjoy the solitude of togetherness, speaking in hushed tones as if afraid you’d break the serenity if you spoke out loud.

You can create this Romantic Interlude for your sweetheart.

Maybe your sweetheart finds it very romantic to receive the gift of your time and would treasure such a setting. Find a noise-free location like a sheltered cove, a country trail or an alpine meadow. Somewhere away from people. Bring along any supplies you might want: food, drink, blanket. Then enjoy these moments together. No agenda. No hurry. Just sharing the time together. That’s what’s important to your sweetheart.

If you’re a bit more adventuresome, add a panoramic vista of vineyards, grand oaks scattered here and there, a meandering stream. Enjoy it from above by taking a ride in a hot air balloon. Let your pilot worry about where to go and how to get there. In the silence, drift along at the whim of the wind, floating above breath-taking vistas that leave you feeling like you’re the only two looking down on the mesmerizing beauty below.

Let the quiet of togetherness bring you Romance. Shhhh – Robert
