Be Still

The weather has been brutally cold here this winter. Today was a gorgeous reprieve. Although I had many things that needed my attention, I couldn't stand it any longer. Donning my coat, hat, gloves and boots I grabbed my camera and headed out the door.
I wanted to soak in a few minutes of sunshine but I was unprepared for the utter stillness.
I wonder how much we think about the noise in our lives? My pellet stove runs non-stop in this cold weather along with the daily sounds i.e. the washer, the furnace, the phone etc. All of it stopped.
I stood still in the silence, listening to the sound of my own breathing.
