Sunrise 18 August 2021 - MELISSA McVEIGH

Time is a funny thing.  Too fast, too slow.  It is a rare moment indeed that we have no real concept of time.  Rarer still, to stop for a full hour (ish), actually stop.  Separated from phone, from watch, from notifications, emails, phone calls – I could finally block out the noise of my world and tune in to the muted sounds of traffic, the odd seagull and an insistent forklift in the distance.

A rare opportunity to almost completely switch off from the chaos of my professional life.  A much-needed moment of stillness and reflection.

Now, back to the 32 notifications on my phone and it’s only bloody 6:55 AM.
