Silence in Whitstable

West Beach. Whitstable
On Thursday.

I managed to get away to the seaside this weekend for the first time this year and it was so good to get a walk on that beach and breathe the sea air. Although a threat of some cold weather is afoot just that taste of the warm sun has really done the trick for me. It seems to reenergise the creative part of my brain. What I realised when I woke in the night on friday was how very quiet it was and that very realisation gave another bit of space in my head...just the silence itself. I think one becomes desensitised from the constant drone of sound there is in London I can hear it right now. I am going to try and get away to the quiet as much as I can this year with this awareness and see what happens!!

As my Nana used to say "silence is golden". I used to laugh to myself when I was a kid and wonder what she was talking about. As an adult and a mother of 4 grown daughters I have learned to appreciate her quote.
How wonderful for you to be by the sea! I hope you get many trips there this year.
