Yesterday was a very windy day here Forty mph winds. Tough to hear. It was cold too. It was so windy I could not hear anything but the wind. No cars driving by, no birds, nothing but a loud wind. Today was different. This morning before daybreak it was clear, cold and quiet. The full moon was out and lit up the morning sky like the sun. The trouble was I could not experience the peace of the moment without stopping. As I walk through the grass and leaves I sometimes tend to make noise. I have to physically stop to hear the quiet. I stand motionless and can hear for miles. When I am walking or running, I can usually only hear myself making noise. Today, stop and listen. Experience the quiet.
