The outer flow of rushing about , tactile closeness with all that we seek , filling holes in time and mind abruptly called to cease . A jolt has come .
Suddenly there was silence .
Empty streets and roads eerily made space for contemplation . Birds became renewed in the absence of man’s busyness and their songs rang out in sweetness and joy . Their freedom to soar and to explore quietly inviting a look into one’s soul .
Suddenly we could see .
Sacredness in each breath of all living things is known like never before . “Don’t take my breath away ” we call out while our absence from the hectic activity we crave has been healing the air . The glory of nature set free , her colors rebound as if touched by magic , while we enter a passage …what will we discover ?
