A Moment of Silence


The office is quiet. About a third of people took the day off and it’s one of the calmer days after two weeks worh of work being stuffed into two and a half days. Being that I work at a business that serves other businesses, most clients probably also have vacant offices for a top-up to the official long weekend.

Cottagers trek to their quiet lakeside home and campers drive to their site to listen to the wind and the birds and the crickets. Except it’s quieter here than it is there, possibly for the whole weekend. Sure, we have plenty of urban Canada day celebrations, but noise is relative. I don’t think on weekends like this those who brag about a second home in the country get what they’re paying for.
