Have you ever heard the wonderful silence just before the dawn? Or the quiet and calm just as a storm ends? Or perhaps you know the silence when you haven't the answer to a question you've been asked, or the hush of a country road at night, or the expectant pause of a room full of people when someone is just about to speak, or, most beautiful of all, the moment after the door closes and you're alone in the whole house? Each one is different, you know, and all very beautiful if you listen carefully. [Norton Juster, The Phantom Tollbooth]
There are many sorts of Quiet. I’m making a study of this. It requires a lot of listening to really know The Quiet. I’m remarkably good at this I’ve discovered.
Time is a gift, given to you, given to give you the time you need, the time you need to have the time of your life. [Norton Juster, The Phantom Tollbooth]
I’ve wondered at this business, Time, and having Enough of it. I think I’ve learnt there’s always been and always is and always will BE Enough. I canNOT sort it out to adequately explain HOW it works, but I know it does and has and will.
Life is curiously imperfect and BEautimous, y’know?! It really is.
I love you, Currie
