Silence

"Have you ever watched the clouds move across the sky when they fly by faster than your eyes can chase them? And when they finally fly in front of the moon the sky is dark for a moment. Your favorite song ends and for 3 seconds there is no sound. You realize that tonight you would much prefer the silence over the noise, and you wish upon stars you can't see that the sky might stay still for a few more hours, or that you could stay still for a few more years. And you find yourself correcting your thoughts - oh, how I'd love to stay still for the rest of time. No movement, no thoughts, no judgment or pain...just silence."


-Christine Htoon, my dear friend.
