I had a beautiful moment yesterday.
I had just had a big panic attack at home about nothing in particular, and had to rush about packing an over-night bag as I was going to see a late showing of The Hobbit with my sister in London and staying with her boyfriend.
Anyway, I had only just managed to stop tears from falling down my cheeks on their own accord, when I was getting on the train.
I put in my noise-cancelling earphones and put ob my go-to calming album: Alt-J’s ‘An Awesome Wave’.
As I stepped off the train and descended the escalators, I walked through the underground crowds with the music filling my ears. I can barely describe how beautiful it was to feel like I was cut off from the hustle and the noise and to be in my own bubble.
I still felt as hectic in my mind as the crowds around me, but part of me was indescribably soothed by the detachment I felt from the world.
