The television had been turned off earlier.
No music played in the background.

Silence.

And at that very moment,

all I could hear was the murmur of the
air conditioning unit above me. It struck me how
important stillness is.

And at that very moment,

I realized that I need quiet time. A time
when I am not reviewing my day or planning
the next day’s adventure.

And at that very moment,

I realized it is simply fine to do nothing less,
as I say is MORE [ in so many ways ]
