Cathedral air cools us to a shiver as we sit silently at dusk.
There's something here amongst dusk's shadows. There's the silence of the huge space, of course, the silence of the walls; of stained glass histories and of pillars.
There's footsteps, coughs, whispered conversations: their reverence only bends the silence.
We watch those shadows, uncertain whether we have actually seen or just imagined. We can't be sure of either.
But we know we have felt: it's not for nothing that we have seen or imagined, and as we leave we know our souls have changed.
