"Silence is the universal refuge."
~ Henry David Thoreau ~

We live in a fast, noisy, busy world, 
so it's key really, 
every so often, 
to shut off the sound and sit or walk or just be in silence. 
And, though our minds may rattle on, 
if we trust the quiet,
 and breathe deeply into it, 
it will steady us,  
and restore us to balance 
and clear vision, 
and wisdom,
and peace.

I make time to be quiet.
