THE SOUND OF SILENCE

Rain has fallen overnight and still softly pitter-pattering on my lounge roof at midday.

The construction workers over the road are working elsewhere as the rain precludes working on the building facade today.

To me, such minimal sound is like Silence.

I love it.

I love the faint sound of Nature’s presence reminding me that I don’t live in an urban area, just surrounded by Nature.   Far away from the sounds of humans (or I did before the developers moved across the road and decimated my wonderful cliff face).

A distant call of an Australian Magpie just reminded me I live halfway between the city and the country.

I came across this old image of Autumn leaves in the Fitzroy Gardens, made 21st April 2011, this morning.   Years later I went back to this site and found the mound of rocks had been removed the area re-landscaped.

It’s one of those images I enjoy every time I see it.   It reminds me of the impermanence of this life I have and how nothing ever stays the same.
