So the other day I was pretty much rambling about how much noise surrounds me. I’ve found that silence is one of the precious gifts surrounding the wee hours of the morning. No one likes to be up before they have to and well last night I was in bed super early. So now I have time to write for about and hour uninterrupted. While we are stil in the early months of winter I can still hear the birds chirping and very few airplanes flying over head. The morning day is fast approaching yet there is still a calmness to today’s presence. Maybe because I know I don’t have to hustle and bustle everywhere like I do during the week.
I’ve learned to appreciate silence since I don’t get too much of it – as a matter of fact I’ve been searching for places to be in silence. Other than the wee hours of the morning, I find it in my car – parked after driving in hours of traffic. I find it in the bathroom….. that’s about it. Silence is hard to find. Where do you find silence in the midst of all this noise today?
