the power of one

for a brief and beautiful moment there was silence

no planes in the sky, no trains going overground, no automobiles or buses or lorries or police sirens on the bridge

a single crow flew past me (eight floors up), a single cormorant was fishing in the river, a single duck paddled along the edge of the incoming tide

complete silence (don't you love the way that silence is "complete")

brief and beautiful

I hope you find
a moment of peace
in your day

Was that yesterday? I wish I'd been here to share that peaceful moment. (could have done with a bit of completeness)
xxx and thank you for it today :)

Did silence by demand earlier. Yup, holed myself up in the darkened bedroom with an icepack and covers over my head....

Not QUITE with it yet.... But I'm workin' on it.
Sorta.
