the silence of moving water

 
 

Cosy on my couch with tea this morning.

And then the sky does something impossible to ignore.

So I walk to the ravine at the end of my street

and stand behind a juniper tree above the creek, and listen

to the silence of morning before birds, of nothing but moving water

and think how lucky to be in a place where silence calls you out to play.

How very very lucky indeed.

Happy new year, friends…

Here’s to a little more peace and kindness for all.

“There is always an element of sadness in celebration. We cannot celebrate without alluding to it, because there are people on this earth of ours who are not celebrating, who are despairing, anguished, starving and mourning. That is why all celebration should end with a silence in which we remember… all those who cannot celebrate…” ~ Jean Vanier

        1. Yes, I think so. You mentioned it in relation to a sky shot once upon a time… the intensity of colour that’s gone in a second, and how we’re sometimes lucky enough to catch that split second moment. Thank you!
