Sometimes there is nothing better than to feel all alone on the planet.

Sure, most of the time I don't want to feel isolated and alone. However in the rare moments where everything is quiet and still it feels as if the whole world belongs to me.

It gives me time to think. It gives me the space to breathe and think.

I know a lot of people who never seem to have silence... iPod, mobile, always prattling on... they even go to sleep with the television on, as if the world will stop being there if they allow it to get silent.



  1. Funny, I was watching the British Coastline programme last night and the presenter was on the Isle of Skye - it was so beautiful, and there was absolutely nobody there. I was thinking about solitude watching it. There are too many people in our world, definitely too much noise and interference.

  2. Funny, I was watching the same programme last night without actually watching it. It had that charming Charles Kennedy in it.

  3. I like this posting. It's all soft and quiet. I rarely get silence. I'm one of those people speak of who's afraid of the world disappearing if I switch it off, but I appreciate the stillness all the same.

  4. love silence...three kids do no provide many periods of silence!When I was in the states I had no phone, no texts, one phone to my family a day and an odd email...I missed it!
