LAST TUESDAY AFTERNOON,
THE SKY WAS FILLED WITH A SILENT SMOKE.
LIKE MOST DAYS, THE RAIN WHISPERED
LIGHTLY,
HUSHED,
UNTIL DAWN BROKE

THE NEXT MORNING,


THE ICY MIST FLOODED THE STREETS.
OUR FINGERTIPS ON THE COOL GLASS,
UNTOUCHABLE,
STILL,
WAITING FOR OUR EYES TO MEET

picturesque view to enrapture me in a timeless trance. Its the light.
The light is gentle, pale, a mere whisper, an untouchable presence
but a presence nevertheless. With the light of the morning embers
comes a silence. A hollow silence.

In the early minutes of the soft dawn glow behind the morning 6 6

mist, I sit and fill my silent room with my music. My head dips, my
hand cups my face as I hum along. Outside, nothing moves, so I
stare. Slowly, hesitantly, my eyes close, and my mind is calm, and I
am content.

This is a ritual to soothe my soul before I let my daily schedule


corrupt my mind. An inevitable series of events, but not undesirable
- it is the balance of staccato and legato that keeps me focused.
Boredom comes creeping if you linger in emptiness for too long.

My music lifts me away to a whimsical world where I am in control.


A world where I am strong, I am courageous; a wave of big
emotions drawn by small sounds. The music drowns out the dark
and illuminates my ambition.

With this world, the tangible world, on the other side of my


frosted window, I am untouchable. I bask in this dim light, steadily
preparing myself for my duties.

The day begins with my body feeling lightweight, but my


determination firm. A little time, a little light, and hushed sounds
