The Calm Before The Storm

By Shannon Payne

The calm before the storm; it’s an odd phenomena isn’t it? Almost everyone can sense it. It becomes eerily quiet and there is almost a physical presence; like you can feel something is about to happen. However, in that moment you can’t help but also notice the beauty in silence. Everything is at rest; everything is at peace.

In those moments one is truly and genuinely free. You give yourself over to the knowledge that something inevitable is about to occur. You exhale a sigh of acceptance and it’s as if a weight has been lifted off your shoulders. That is where true happiness lies.
