I needed to read this, Sven... I've found the quiet recently. It's difficult for me to appreciate it as being that, peacefulness, as you say... and I needed a little reminder of it.
I think I'll go for a walk sometime later today... I could use that. Maybe go read in a park or something.
I admire your optimism, as always... Very nicely written, Sven. You expressed this well.
Poets are the unacknowledged legislators of the world.
