Notes from the Waxhaws

Slow world

with one comment

The contrast between the brown haze of LA…and the clear Spring morning here in the Carolinas couldn’t have been greater. Leaving the frenetic traffic…and mentality…behind, it was good to get back to a world that is slow…and seemingly timeless. I’ve been spending the last two days winding down…back in silence…syncing up with local time. Sounds still pleasantly numbed from the roar of jet engines. The only movement being the sun as it creeps across the walls. The only sounds…those of birds. One bird’s song  in particular has been haunting me…a plaintive, ascending trill that I can’t quite place. It reminds me of a similarly eerie upward spiral from the old movie The Time Machine. A warbler of some kind, I imagine…keeping me company for a few days as it passes through on its way north…taking a welcomed break from its long journey. Slow is good.
