I’ve come to appreciate silence as one of the most precious things in this world.
Silence not only from external forces, distractions and temptations, assaulting us from every angle,
but also silence from within, the quelling of our inner desires and restless thoughts.
Sometimes I look up, and catch sight of a beautiful of silhouette of a tree against the vast sky,
Or perhaps a beautiful sunset, absorbing all the negativity in this world as the sun sinks into the horizon,
Or something as simple as wispy clouds floating unhurriedly by…
and I think, if Silence took on a form, this is what it might look like.
And this precious silence would make a great gift, any day 🙂
