i need these things so very much...my world has become incredibly noisy lately. literally. all day, every day, nothing but big-city human noise - mostly construction. at home, at work, driving in-between. everywhere i turn there is construction; even at the park! ALL the parks! i'm all for progress, but we never seem to "get there". i dream of just sitting in silence, hearing the birds and the wind in the trees. our man-made noise seems to drown out all of nature, and i'm longing to feel part of the whole again.
i'm currently taking a wonderful photography class, and i'm reminded that the act of photographing the world around me helps me experience the underlying calm...when i slow down to see, prepare and execute the shot, i re-join the slower-moving world that lies beneath our self-conjured sound & fury.
and the low-key rhythm i find there fits and feels so right.
