Silence… shared in Kahurangi National Park, New Zealand.

True silence is a rare experience… For most of us, daily life is full of noise. Television, radio, traffic, people…. Silence, and by that I mean true silence, for me is an opportunity to appreciate being alive, a brief moment in time to be stretched and appreciated, relished for its beauty and ability to humble.

Kahurangi National Park is in the top of the South Island, New Zealand. For vast areas, there is no mobile phone network, no internet, no electric power lines, no roads, no vehicles, no people. No distractions.

Sitting to gaze at the view, there is only the sound of the wind, the buzz of insects, the occasional bird call, and the sound of your own breathing.  And then it all stops, just for a moment. Silence. True silence.

And that’s when I slowly turn, gently squeeze the hand of my loved one and share her smile…
