I am not a religious person
I am a person who seeks a safe space
In a church, at a mosque or a temple
I like to be able to immerse myself in a space
Where I can sit in the uncomfortable of silence
Where I am not known to anyone
Where I can position myself amongst the architecture and become lost
I often witness prayer gatherings, call to pray and ringing of a bell.
I understand some of what I witness
I appreciate the space, the chants, the gatherings, the suspicious look
Prayer comes in many forms, in many languages, in many rituals
For me right now it is the space, the silence, the ambience and the knowledge
I am evolving as a person.
