I have been sitting in silence since 4am.
Silence is very noisy -
~ I can hear the fridge rumbling away,
~ the central heating has just kicked in.
~ Behind me youngest Gnomelette's CD Clock is Ticking away.
~ Intermittently the cooling fan in my LapTop whirs into action.
~ There is a high tinkly sound from the modem or router, never quite worked that one out.
~ The walls are creaking as the house heats up.
~ Then there is the noise inside my head, always noisy - never stops.
Where can I go to find silence?
After Elijah had looked for God in the storm, the fire, the wind - he found God in the stillness and silence.
