Day 142 – Silence


Silence can cure. Silence is the only thing that cleans your soul and opens your mind. And when you sit in silence, things happen,things move around you because the world doesn’t stand still waiting for you, but it can move in your favor.

If you listen to the silence you create around you, you can hear the useless noise and separate it from the happy shouts, the needed screams, the laughter and real words speaking to you. I have created my own silence today and the world screamed at me and wanted my attention. For a split second everything I ever wished for has fallen at my feet and asked me to take it, so I have reached my hand and despite what I would have imagined, I didn’t get burnt nor slapped, I had touched my future for that split second.

Silence may be your best friend if only you could understand its real noise.

About the author

Ela Vasilescu

I’m a writer based in Florence, Italy.

Human nature inspires me, different cultures, traditions, folk stories and the differences which make us unique. Documenting stories is a privilege, a glimpse into humanity, an unforgettable experience, one which I embrace and honour every day.

If you have a story twitching in the back of your pocket, one that is ready to be told, shared and heard, chances are I will be ready to listen; so don’t hesitate to send me an email.
