Every Tuesday, step by step, I’m walking with my readers from A to Z, last week we had “P” (visit tagged P), so this week we have Q – I’m sure you’ll find a story or a short reflection tagged with “Q”! Feel free to add in the comments below the link to your personal interpretation of the letter “Q”!!! Myself I’ll feature “Q” for quietness:
Oh this quietness! I will never forget the silence on that Christmas Eve in 1964, when I tried through waist-deep snow in darkness on a closed country road to reach my home beyond the forest. I had started my walk in a village at 8 clock in the evening. Because of the onset of snowfall (and: it was Christmas Eve!) not a single car was driving. At midnight, finally arrived at the height of the mountain to be overcome, still half way in the icy night in front of me, suddenly came up behind a lone taxi. The driver, a classmate, Peter Schüttler, he saw me and stopped. In a hell hunting, snow violently thrusting aside, it went downhill. A week later, his driving style had killed him.
Below seven pictures, kindly sent from different flickr photographers to my group BLOG IT! They all have a hidden message of QUIETNESS, I believe, or not? Click on the images to enter the galleries of the several photographers:
