It is possible to describe tranquillity as the absence of disturbance, and the absence of the fear of disturbance.

But perhaps we can feel the fuller forms of tranquillity as something that is present, or something in which we are present.

For me, as a fairly non-standard person, one important thing about tranquillity is that I do not have to explain myself or defend my choices and actions. This is linked with privacy.

``Values'' is a new area of my web pages; some of these pages are simply stubs to mark what should subsequently appear there.
