Something Positive

Positive,
I read this on a forum, post something positive in your life to share or be thankful for, then sat thinking for 45 min before finding something positive, the last few weeks and months have been very negative, bad luck, negative people, bad health, etc etc.

Snow,
a few days ago there was no snow here, it was muddy, cold, wet, miserable really. Two nights ago I Pulled up at 7pm, took the dog out of the neighbour’s barn (Canadian Redneck doggy daycare!!!) had to use flashlight because it was so dark.

We romped a bit in the dark, playing fetch then into to the box truck camper to make dinner. A few hours later we came out so she could do her nature calls outside. Both of us stopped dead in our tracks, for within two hours there was about 4 cm of snow on the ground with snow falling gently from the sky. The thing that made us stop dead in our tracks was the fact that it was so light outside now, remember just two hours ago at 7pm I had to use a flashlight to see, now the entire sky and area was lit up in a quite bright glow.

The fresh snow was glistening on the ground whilst the snow falling down was like brightly reflective pixy dust in the air. Everything was calm and O so quiet with the only sound being the crunch of frozen ground through the soft powder that was dusting our feet. With the calm snow the temperatures inside had risen another 5 deg celsius so we were warmer, the incessant winds of the last two weeks had finally been abated as well.

My dog was running around happily jumping in the snow, I started scooping up snow to toss at her, she jumping down in that grinning doggy play way, paws spread with her face close to the ground. Tossing snow while she attacked it in mid-air or tried to catch it in her jaws is a favourite game to play with fresh powder here.

The purity of freshly fallen snow glistening in the night or day is magical, something that only people from the North can fully love and appreciate. The quiet that enshrouds the land dampening all sound is another wonder and breathtaking experience, so peaceful and serene in its own purity.

Winter is both lovely and dangerous at the same time, lifting the soul in joy with its beauty!

Thundering Silence

What is more profound or Surreal than the Thundering Sound of Silence?

The Thundering Sound of Silence;
… after a Lightening Bolt sizzles in the air around you..

The Thundering Sound of Silence;
… after the Thunder fades to an echo in the distance

The Thundering Sound of Silence;
… after Howling at the Moon

The Thundering Sound of Silence;
… after the last fireworks in the distance has exploded

The Thundering Sound of Silence;
… of silence between each heartbeat

The Thundering Sound of Silence;
… after writing a piece and posting online till the first :Like: or :Comment:

The Thundering Sound of Silence;
… after the guns, firearms, pyrotechnics, tracers, bullets, Artillery simulators, have ceased due to the Command, ” Cease Fire ” during a Live Fire or Firefight

The Thundering Sound of Silence;
… of a first time Comedian at an Open Mike

The Thundering Sound of Silence;
… after the Jake Brake on a large Diesel engine disengages at the bottom of a hill

The Thundering Sound of Silence;
… of your Heartbeat after your first kiss

The Thundering Sound of Silence;
… of your Heartbeat after you make love with someone for the first time

The Thundering Sound of Silence;
… after you leave voicemails and emails to someone you care for, who does not feel the same and does not return emails or voicemails

The Thundering Sound of Silence;
… after you say ” I Love You ” to Someone for the first time

The Thundering Sound of Silence;
… Sitting in a room by yourself

The Thundering Sound of Silence;
… Standing in an Elevator with a group of Strangers

The Thundering Sound of Silence;
… sitting in a food court at a table by yourself, while all the other tables are occupied by people chatting, laughing and carrying on

The Thundering Sound of Silence;
… after the rain stops hitting the Tin Roof or Fiberglass roof of you Camper or small building

The Thundering Sound of Silence;
… after you turn off your Device and it powers down

The Thundering Sound of Silence;
… after you notice your speaking out loud when Nobody is around

The Thundering Sound of Silence;
… after the click of a lock in a shut door in a darkened room

The Thundering Sound of Silence;
… after the last steps have been reached at the top of the stairs,  in an old abandoned farmhouse in the middle of the pasture

The Thundering Sound of Silence;
… after the flashlight goes out during a blackout or power loss as your down in the basement, searching for the Fuse Panel

The Thundering Sound of Silence;
… after your last breath of air to the next gasping breath of air as your Asthma Afflicted Lungs desperately try to draw more air in during an Attack.

The Thundering Sound of Silence;
…  as you fingers stop moving over the keyboard while your brain tries desperately to come up with other Words to describe, feelings, emotions, thoughts, perspectives or anything at all really as you sit staring at the blank or semi blank computer screen or piece of paper,

The Thundering Sound of Silence may be; scary, intense, loud, quiet, painful, joyful, sad, bitter, introspective, thoughtful, lonely, satisfying, or anything else you can think of, for Silence is not as Silent as people think of it.
