To the Quiet Born — 8 Comments

  1. Thank you for sharing this part of your life, Katharyn. I can so identify with your ease with solitude and stilness. For a variety of reasons, I too, feel a sense of comfort with settling into just myself. Your story inspires me perhaps to write mine some day — maybe for the blog, or maybe just for my kids. Thank you again for a delightful and touching read.

    • If you do write your story someday, I’d love to read it. It’d be interesting to learn your thoughts on solitude and stillness.

  2. It was great reading your story Katharyn. As a child, I also was happy being alone in my room with a good book. I loved reading biographies of plucky young women. I also loved reading Nancy Drew mysteries. I’ve found being at home during the pandemic was quite comforting and felt safer. I also love to cook so it was fun getting back into that.

    • It’s good to hear from a fellow reader. Isn’t it great to have time to cook again? And, you’ve given me an idea for a new blog post!

  3. Whenever I have my blood pressure taken, I have to consciously go to my happy place, which is stretched out on the sofa reading a really good book! I’ve been perfectly content to be home most of the time, and have been cooking healthy, fresh and delicious meals for the last few months, in contrast to the breads and desserts that I made at the beginning of the stay-at-home order! I really enjoyed this post, dear friend. 🏘

  4. Thanks for the comment, Judy. It made me laugh to read about the evolution of your cooking, and I can picture you on the couch with book in hand!

  5. So enjoyable, Katharyn. I, too, have coveted my alone time since the days you were most likely to find me up in a tree reading a book. It’s a delight to keep that young one in us always.

  6. Kathryn, I’m wondering if you are still climbing trees? I’m enjoying picturing you reading there.
