The Sound Of Silence Is Golden
First thing in the morning I love the sound of silence! The sound of silence is golden, it imparts its own noise. There is plenty of time for noise with levels above the sound of silence. For me though, early morning silence, is bliss.
I worked for years in noisy environments, lived in the noisy city next to noisy people. So much so, that I’ve been left with hearing loss and Tinnitus. I’m retired now (hoorah) and enjoying every second of silence that I can. I find it odd that people want to put the radio on or even the TV as soon as they get out of bed. Not this kid!
Have you ever sat in the countryside…..
Have you ever sat outside in the countryside on a summers morning? The birds chirping away, perhaps a stream running in the background. This is what I really mean by silence is golden. Likewise, have you ever sat on the motorway at the crack of dawn? I know which I prefer. Silly question really, because everyone would prefer the countryside, wouldn’t they?
I have a dream that one day I’ll move to the country where I can find my perfect silence. I’m sure that someone is going to disagree with me, farm machines and bird scarers going off at all hours. It’s still better than living in the middle of Metropolis, where no one seems to sleep. It used to be just New York, now it seems most cities never go to sleep. Modern Life.
Don’t get me wrong, I love music and I even play guitar. I’ve never been one for blasting it out morning, noon and night without consideration for others. It’s just that my hour or so first thing in the morning with my sound of silence is golden! If you don’t agree, shhh, be quiet! Smiley face.
