This is going to come across as just a tiny-bit cheesy……but: I’ve really been doing alot of thinking lately about silence. I found my way (on YouTube) toward a cavalcade of Small House videos. I find small houses fascincating….and they’re ALL THE RAGE these days. Excess is out! ….(or so they say.)
But amidst all that, I’ve repeatedly watched a bit about a lady in California and her husband who live in a VERY small house, one that is perfectly WITHOUT electricity. I am/was/am enamored with how quiet this woman is. She’s warm, charming, even engaging……but she’s just generally a very quiet person. ….thusly, I began to ask myself, “When was the last time you just sat and listened to silence?” LISTENING to silence…………hmmmmmmm, that idea intrigues me. I have a great deal of noise in my life — and much of it is there, because I put it there. But, what to do about all that??
