Silence

It comes over you in a wave of utter panic. The insistent and unrelenting chaos of our daily lives–it bombards us with noise. So much noise that it makes the head ache and the heart race with an often onset of a sickening stomach. The feelings don’t surface slowly, like bubbles, but rather thrash violently like a shark to prey. It attacks so overwhelmingly fast that it’s a wonder we don’t forget to breath. How can one, under such circumstances, possibly find peace?
