Calm and peace

I had a wonderful experience at the main Pessac Post Office. A new power supply had been sent for a part of the internet setup and they'd tried to deliver it while we were out, so I had to go and collect it.

Well the Post Office was like a Zen garden. Hardly anythng moving. To begin with you felt as if there was a strange disconnection between the speed at which you were living and the speed of things in the Post Office. But after a while you slowed down to match and the calm was wonderful, although one lady didn't manage the slowing down thing - she muttered "pas possible" and zoomed out of the door.

All afternoon I've had this tremendous sense of calm and of time passing slowly. Brilliant.
