Silence

April 8th, 2010 Posted in gratitude

Everything is so lighted up, fanned up, turned on, and opened up that we sometimes forget the most peaceful sound is the sound of silence — silence from electronics. I often forget to turn off my laptop at night, just out of habit and out of tiredness when I’m in a hurry to just get to bed. But whenever I do manage to turn things off, I notice very distinctly the wonderful sounds of silence. The silence of the laptop turned off (it’s amazing how loud these computer fans are), the silence of the buzzing of the lights turned off, the silence of everything just TURNED OFF. It’s nice. I should do it more often.
