Inside Myddfai Church

Quiet is peace. Tranquillity. Quiet is turning down the volume knob on life. Silence is pushing the off button. Shutting it down. All of it. - Amir

Resting Place

The cemetery is an open space among the ruins, covered in winter with violets and daisies. It might make one in love with death, to think that one should be buried in so sweet a place.

More from Myddfai

Often a star was waiting for you to notice it. A wave rolled toward you out of the distant path, or as you walked under an open window, a violin yielded itself to your hearing. All this was mission.

This was taken last weekend in St Michael's Church in Mydffai, Carmarthenshire.

It has to be the most peaceful church I have visited.

I may post more pics of it soon.

I like the silent church before the service begins; better than any preaching.

Talley Abbey

This is my simple religion. There is no need for temples; no need of complicated philosophy. Our own brain, our own heart is our temple; the philosophy is kindness.
