Not too much I want to say today, but I am currently sitting outside by myself having a clove in the moonlight and I felt compelled to note the unusual silence and stillness.

Far less traffic, no planes overhead, no whirring air conditioners, no kids playing.

The most pronounced noise, by far, is the soft chirp of peepers.

It is a stillness that offers comfort, one worth savoring despite the situation that caused it.
