Have you ever stopped and just truly listened to the world around you? The sounds, noises, so many more than we consciously pick up on. If you never have, take a moment to close your eyes, just sit and listen. What do you hear?
I hear cars passing on the street below my apartment, birds chirping and singing to one another, children playing outside and enjoying this warmer weather. The sound of breathing, and my typing.
This world is such a wonderful place, filled with tiny little things that go unnoticed. Yet, if they disappeared, I’m sure we’d notice their absence. It would probably be a bit unsettling even though at times we long for the silence.
Take a moment, rather than speak, listen. What do you hear?
