‘The quieter you become, the more you are able to hear.’
In a world filled with noise and bustle, to have time in quietness is important.
I like going to cafes by myself to read and to think, and to some extent ‘listen to the world’. Some would say it’s eavesdropping but for me it’s just taking an interest in those around me. Listening to other people’s conversations is soothing, it’s nice to sit back and listen, knowing you don’t have to give any input.
As the volume of the world increases I find myself twisting my own dial down to a whisper, and this, I really don’t mind at all.
