Hello chatter, my old friend.The sounds of silence are a dim recollection now, like mystery, privacy and paying attention to one thing — or one person — at a time.
I don’t know about all of you out there but silence is something that makes me uncomfortable most of the time…and I am not even sure why.
There is just so much “chatter” in my head at any given moment of the day especially at this time of year…the lists…the schedules, the “smart phone” etc.
This morning my house is empty except for me and three dogs, who are at the moment behaving themselves and enjoying the sun streaming in the windows. They have all found their spots and are napping…
I, on the other hand, am writing this post instead of just sitting back and enjoying the quiet.
As hard as I try, “kicking back” is not something I do except when I am at the ocean…and let’s face it I am not at the beach very often especially at this time of year and I do live in Chicagoland so that should tell you that the ocean is not exactly close by .
Oh yes, I do have a conch shell that I put up to my ear when I come across it… I used to religiously listen to ocean sounds on my sound machine… where is my sound machine anyway?
Silence is Golden…
So I am going to sit here and enjoy it for awhile…before pre-school line-up begins.
Thanks for reading and I hope you grab some silence when you can it is well worth savoring.
