Five-Minute Friday: Quiet

It’s 3 a.m. and all is still. Even the traffic noises are muffled as I step outside and carefully, noiselessly close and lock the back door.

The air smells of burnt wood, watered grass and decaying leaves — the usual scents of autumn prevail.

Where am I going in this quiet time? Perhaps I don’t need a destination. It is enough just to be there, accepting the flow of the night breeze, not seeking but only being.

Quiet is an important part of my life. I am a loner who becomes agitated if I am around large groups of people for a very long time. The stillness allows my heart to beat without constraint, my mind to imagine without limits. I treasure my quiet moments with just myself and God.
