The Interwoven Nature of Things
I have, over the last 2 nights, finally had the pleasure of silence at night. It is amazing, in a new home, to discover delightful things like quiet nights. The clock radio starts in the morning and you realize that, hey, you haven't even woken up to go to the washroom! When you closed your eyes it was dark outside, now it is light. And you actually had to be awakened by the clock, as opposed to waking up before the clock! It is amazing to me what a rested state can do for you.
It is also amazing to me how interwoven things can be. One can love birds and thoroughly enjoy them, and at the same time have a ripple effect of birds=no sleep=fatigue=stress=poor health. There is also the weave of no birds=excellent sleep=energy=excellent health. This is how things can weave together in ways that create harmony or not. The weave can sometimes get tangled, but then can get disentangled and flow very well. No matter what the weave is, it can be changed by choice. My most recent choice was to move house to, amongst other things, disentangle from the racket that the natural world was creating. Now I can enjoy a peaceful neighbourhood and a peaceful yard, and a peaceful night's sleep. You gotta love that!
