MC's Whispers

Whispering Silences

Wash your worries away

© David Stewart

There’s something relaxing about getting lost in nature. It is tremendously soothing to allow your mind to wander off, to stop perplexing over routine daily life problems, and merely enjoy the moment of all that the outdoors has to offer.

Water helps. The trickling of it calms your nerves, and the endless flow is actually better than any anti-depressant or tranquiliser.

Waterfalls are the best at this. They offer a combination of sight and sound, and if you’re bold enough, you can even dive into them to wash your worries away.

Just don’t take it so literally, and drown instead.

  1. A pleasant meditation with the waking clap at the end. Well done, MC.


  2. A delightful piece ending with some very wise words! Well done.


  3. I do agree about the sound and sight of a waterfall being soothing. I think I’ll stay beside it, however, rather than in it.

  6. A very cold bath was at one time used to treat depression, well it does perk you up for a bit. Almost like diving into a pool at the bottom of a waterfall, I must try it.
