Have you ever thought about how quiet the world must have been 400 years ago? Before radios. cars. planes. war. Before we were peretually serenaded by the clamour in our world. Imagine it. The whole world sounded like an evening in the country.
I LOVE the sound of Christmas Eve. Dad and I go outside and stand in the driveway and just listen. To nothing. There’s no road noise, no neighborhood parties. A quiet peace embraces the night like a warm a blanket. (whoa, that was dramatic…) This is the way it sounds after a good snow. And being in the south, by “good snow” I mean a quarter of an inch is enought to hush the day.
Not to be all Simon and Garfunkel, but I love…i crave the sound of silence.
