The Nancy Brown Peace Carillon Tower has an interesting history.

 

The 98-foot (30m) tower on Belle Isle was constructed in 1939. Nancy Brown (a pen name of Annie Louise Brown) was an advice column writer for The Detroit News. She had a large following, and she held Sunday services on Belle Isle. The tower was funded by small donations, mainly from Nancy's fans and friends. An estimated 50,000 people attended the dedication of the tower in 1940.

 

Bells were never installed in the tower, but a sound system played patriotic and inspirational songs, and chimes sounded on the hour. New chimes were installed in 2003.

 

Belle Isle, an island in the Detroit River, is currently a Michigan State Park. The water shown in the picture is a part of a canal system on the island.

Before we had to fence our backyard in order to adopt our dog, Emmy, I had a love/hate relationship with deer. The deer in our neighborhood viewed our backyard as a haven with the added benefit of gourmet dining.

It was lovely to look out my window and see one peacefully sleeping in my garden. However, I didn't like how they destroyed my garden - aargh! Anyway, the fence solved the whole issue, but at times I still miss seeing them.

A gentle tender moment between 2 gray wolves.

 

Wanted to put up something peaceful today.....

 

Wish I could say I snuck up on them and got this shot at 105 mm. Instead I enjoyed some quality time with several wolves at West Yellowstone's Grizzly and Wolf Discovery Center. This was my favorite pair. A stop here is highly recommended if you're ever in West Yellowstone.

 

Thanks for taking a look. Always appreciated!

 

Peace…

O'Great Spirit

help me always to speak the truth quietly,

to listen with an open mind when others

speak, and to remember the peace that

may be found in silence.

Go placidly amid the noise and the haste, and remember what peace there may be in silence.

As far as possible without surrender be on good terms with all persons.

Speak your truth quietly and clearly; and listen to others, even to the dull and the ignorant, they too have their story.

Avoid loud and aggressive persons, they are vexations to the spirit.

If you compare yourself with others, you may become vain or bitter; for always there will be greater and lesser persons than yourself.

Enjoy your achievements as well as your plans. Keep interested in your own career, however humble; it is a real possession in the changing fortunes of time.

Exercise caution in your business affairs, for the world is full of trickery. But let not this blind you to what virtue there is; many persons strive for high ideals, and everywhere life is full of heroism.

Be yourself. Especially do not feign affection.

Neither be cynical about love; for in the face of all aridity and disenchantment it is as perennial as the grass.

Take kindly the counsel of the years, gracefully surrendering the things of youth.

Nurture strength of spirit to shield you in sudden misfortune. But do not distress yourself with dark imaginings. Many fears are born of fatigue and loneliness.

Beyond a wholesome discipline, be gentle with yourself.

 

You are a child of the universe, no less than the trees and the stars; you have a right to be here. And whether or not it is clear to you, no doubt the universe is unfolding as it should.

 

Therefore, be at peace with God, whatever you conceive Him to be. And whatever your labors and aspirations in the noisy confusion of life, keep peace in your soul. With all its sham, drudgery and broken dreams; it is still a beautiful world.

Be cheerful.

Strive to be happy.

The Peace rose, formally Rosa 'Madame A. Meilland', is a well-known and successful garden rose.

By 1992, over one hundred million plants of this hybrid tea had been sold.

It is hardy and vigorous and relatively resistant to disease, making it popular in gardens as well as in the floral trade.

It was developed by French horticulturist Francis Meilland in the years 1935 to 1939.

 

Have a wonderful weekend

Dear society

You are moving way too fast

Way too fast for me

I'm just tryna catch my breath

 

Can I get a little peace of mind?

And a bit of silence to unwind?

Avicii - Peace Of Mind

Every day, in every way I

am getting better and

becoming stronger. The

actions I take and the

decisions I make allow me

to grow, learn and thrive.

I am at peace with myself.

Another shot from my hike last week in the park. I haven't been in Peace park in over a year. The city has done a lot of work on it. New bike trails and lanes. Water falls like this one and an improved hiking trail. Nice to see out tax dollars at work..:)

And wild and sweet

The words repeat

Of peace on earth, good-will to men!”
