A Quiet Place

In this crazy, fast-paced world we live in, you have to enjoy those quiet spots wherever you can find them.

I was fascinated by this scene when I bumped into it at the Javits Center in New York City.  An oasis of quiet in a city that is not known for being quiet.  The woman simply owned the spot, and from what I could tell, no one dared to occupy any of the empty chairs next to her.  A perfect display of momentary solitude and territoriality.  An unintended, silent commentary that no one dared to disrupt.  I wonder if she knew she was saying so much with her silence.
