Not a long one today. Hiked for the solitude and prayer time more so than the exercise. Captures the sounds on video today though.
From solitude and silence are born tender contrition, and meekness; the activity of this latter in the human heart may be compared to that quiet water of Siloe, which flows without noise or sound, as the Prophet Isaiah speaks of it: ‘the waters of Siloe that go softly’ .
~ St. Seraphim of Sarov
