Taking Things For Granted

#258 This afternoon there was a #powercut in the village which stopped me in my tracks. I had been doing some work but the Internet and printer were both off. I had been meaning to get a cup of #tea for some time but that was not possible as even the hob is electric. There was no radio, no tea, no food (I was just going to toast some crumpets) and no phone as there is little to no signal without an Internet boost. It was a very quiet hour which made me think about how much I take for granted in our modern, fast paced society. After the power returned, my tea and crumpets tasted better than ever, but I also appreciated the #stillness and #silence. whilst it is an inconvenience, there is a greater #appreciation for something once it has gone. It made me wonder what, or who, in life should I have more appreciation of before it is too late…
