What’s that sound?!

Shh!

What’s that sound?

Oh! That’s the ice maker.

Shh!

What’s that sound?

Oh! That’s the heat kicking on.

Shh!

What’s that sound?

Silence.

Silence.

Silence.

Silence.

That’s strange. I haven’t heard that sound in ages.

Silence. That’s the sound I am not used to. That’s the sound I often long to hear. That’s the sound that allows me to clear my head. That’s the sound that allows my body to relax. That’s the sound that makes me happy!!!

Silence is truly golden.

(My family was sound asleep when I was allowed to hear this sound. I had two full hours of silence. What a joy!)

  1. I live a lone, with dogs. I didn’t really appreciate the silence until my instructional assistant said “It must be quiet at your house.” She had two teenagers at home. I’ve always needed quiet at home. After her comment, I appreciated it .
