Still Quiet

Thinking of yesterday and of the need for silence to quiet the racket of the outside world and sometimes in our own heads.
Children crave as much as adults for meaningful pauses in their busy lives.
One of my favorite picture books on the topic is The Quiet Book from Deborah Underwood. I heard the author read her story shortly before it was published. I liked it immediately. Check it out.
Deborah Underwood has published The Loud Book since then.
But today, as it seems like rains might finally make its way to California, conjuring quiet pictures of reading and writing, quietness is still very much on my mind.
