Pillar and Stairs 0364

There is a welcome stillness to the early morning that just does not exist once the sun arises and the business of the day begins.  On a personal level, while it becomes increasingly difficult to muster out of bed pre-sunrise, it is well-worth the reward of experiencing the coolness of the air and the sound of emptiness.

Foggy day looking out a window.

The same experience can be had on foggy days.  The damp moisture in the air suppresses sound; traffic slows down; and fewer people are out and about.

Both of these scenarios present an interesting question to ponder: what is there that exists in the absence of?

Take care.
