Sleepwalking my way through life: Rise and shine



Rise and shine

22:59

It is never silent. People think that all the time, that the dead of night is exactly that; dead. That is far from true; it just as full of life as day is, except it’s softer. There are no birds twittering, there are fewer cars about and there is no one else wandering the streets. There is nothing else except for the sound of your footsteps and the hum of the night.

If you listen closely enough, and you hold your breath so you can make no other sound, it’s almost as if you can hear the sunrise as it peaks out from behind the horizon. Making its call to the world that it’s time to open your eyes and breathe deep.

This is beautiful... I loved it.

I'm more in your time zone, though I don't know how far apart we are in hours, I'm in Israel. So we get to watch the sun rise way before the USA bloggers do... nice. :)

....the sounds of silence. People hearing without listening...it's almost perfect.

SM - Ah, but the sun has not yet even begun to rise. I just talk about the sun rising because I really wish it'd hurry up. Oh, and I had nothing else to talk about.

Marie - Yeah, I keep thinking of that 4am in Tescos. It was amazing.
