On a walk today, and when I reached the reservoir I though about:
Go outside and walk in the direction that is the quietest. Continue until youâre in the quietest place possible. Take a moment to absorb it.

Â A sheep started bawling, not so quietly and I moved into the larch to take the moment.
How loud the burn,
Birds snatch my eyes, swallows skim the waterÂ and a robin bobs in a lower branch.
As I listen bird song quiets the water, as I focus on one songÂ the others fade.
A baby wren trills along a branch, shouting for food.
The first midge bite moves me on, out of the trees and into the wind.
