Q is for quiet



borgo argenina is a beautiful bed and breakfast I stayed at with my family last summer in italy. it was the epitome of peace and quiet. the only sounds you heard were from nature. this view is from the table we sat at in the breakfast room. and yes this picture is nice, but trust me when I say I wish I captured the real beauty of this place.

Difficult for us upstaters to imagine the quiet of Long Island; we tend to think of it all as the Expressway.

I haven't visited Italy yet but before I even read your text I somehow thought of Italy when I saw this lovely photo. It looks like a gorgeous place.

Oh, peace and calm! How lovely and inviting. Early in the a.m. I can enjoy some degree of peace and calm on my porch; birds twittering, an occasional dog barking....nice.

And I was just about to ask where might this place be!

I'd love a weekend like this. How pleasant it would be to get away from the city!
