My day started pretty early with a visit from two cape eagle owls who were calling to one another from our roof and the roof of the house opposite. I was sitting having my coffee when I heard them calling to one another and something struck me – it’s so quiet in our neighbourhood that I’m even hearing owls calling to one another because the sound of cars and people getting up early to go about their days business isn’t present.
I decided to embrace the quiet today and social distance myself from my phone and laptop and concentrate on doing things that spark joy. I got some exercise in. I cleaned and re-arranged a spare bedroom that I hope to use for telecons because it’s quiet. I caught up on a few series. We had a braai outside by the pool. I chilled with the dogs on the couch.
Many people are commenting on how eerie the quite is… but personally I’m loving it.
