Comfortable Silence

POSTED: 22 Sep 2016

Silence, something almost unheard of these days. In a world of immediate communication, updates and repetition of information, we are loaded and saturated with almost too much sights and sounds.

In the rare moments of silences, it almost feels strange and unnatural, the silences when we run out of small talk, the silence when your mobile devices die and you realise that you have no idea what to do, the silence the morning after the party, the silence when you are stuck in the washroom listening to someone else doing their business in the next cubicle.


Of course, there are instances where silence can be appreciated and enjoyed. The starkness of the dawn, the silence that follows the breeze and the crashing of the waves, the silence of watching the sunset or the stars in the night sky, the silence of your own room, the silence of comfort.
