Quietsome Twilight – Wallaroo, South Australia

I remember when life was slow. One could slip between the moments of the day, and those moments of self-reflection allowed the soul to breathe.

Now, life is ultra-fast. We live beyond speed dial and no-one is out of range. Connection is King, Queen and Country.

Rarely, a moment arrives like a time traveller from the quietsome past. It slips between the seconds and presses the soul to breathe once more, before sliding away.

    Sometimes, we forget that we do, in fact, still have a break pedal and an off switch. Lovely shot.

      You’re right @maesha-shannon . I think that sometimes we’re so convinced otherwise that we do forget this fact. Perhaps many have forgotten where the break pedal is? There’s a Thought Experiment for Philosophers….
      Thank you 🙂

        Can I ask how you got out on the water? The perspective is so inviting I almost didn’t have a thought as to the fact that you’ve somehow gotten out in the middle there.

          Hi @maesha-shannon . I was actually standing right on a fenceline sitting above the waterline. The tide was in, so the water was literally a few metres away from my position.
