I’d only stepped out for a moment. Just a short trip to get some milk, maybe bread if there were any fresh loaves left. But somewhere along way I must’ve taken a wrong turn, either on my walk or in my mind, because suddenly before me was something else. Something I’d been longing for; the absence of people. A world uninhabited and uninhibited. And above it, a deep blue sky free of planes and helicopters that usually scrawled across ours. Peace at last.
