Shut Up and Shut The Door

Peace globe by Nanna Aldrich Murakami in Hawaii

Today I took a silent day.
I haven't said a word to anyone all day. I haven't even answered the phone. 

My week has been so exhausting. The noise in my daily world is deafening. My name is called, my skirt is tugged on, or my shoulder is needed about a hundred times a day (not kidding)...and that's goes with the territory. But it's NOISY. And stressful. And exhausting. Did I say exhausting? The last week has been non-stop crisis, meetings and problems at work. Sometimes I feel as though I'm in a tunnel of buzzing bees. 

Last night I came home and went straight to bed. It was 7:00 pm! I woke up at 11:00 am this morning. Yep. That's T.I.R.E.D.

I've done nothing all day but blog peace globes (brings me peace), eat bananas and oranges (brings me health), drink coffee, curl up with a book (Rumi) and nap yet again. Tired.
The next ten days will be hard with performances and final exams. Then I'll have a nice long rest. Forced silence is the surest fastest way to center yourself. Turn off the television. Don't listen to music. No sound on the PC. Choose what you will allow into your world for a couple of days. It's wonderful. Shut the door.

There's a certain peace that comes with silence. It's deep and deafening.
Go get you some.

I appreciate your writing. Silence balancing your overwhelming world "sounds" a good way to centering. Sandra Hammel

Sandra - It did "sound" good to me. And I wish I could take another day today but duty is already calling. Next weekend? Yes. Again. I need it.
We all do.

Thanks for your friendship and lovely comment.

I'm glad you took a needed break. Silence is our friend, it is restorative. The peace globes are lovely, and the one by the 12 year old is remarkable. Wow.
