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.
