ten places of quietude

: the african studies library at UCT
: the rose garden at the company's gardens in central cape town
: under my duvet after lights out, while it rains outside.
: lying in a warm bath up to my neck, with water covering my ears and muffling out the
pummelling noises outside
: between the pages of a bible
: out in the middle of a wilderness where the stars are brightest and there is peace and silence, with no distant hum from the city, nor pollutant reflections of a million lighted streets.
: in prayer.
: the streets of a small french town on christmas day; even the pharmacy is shut tight.
: solitude, with music and nothing but.
: in somebody's embrace.
