― Nicholas Sparks, The Notebook
One thing I know.
I love silence.
I am totally comfortable with it.
I cannot function without it.
I need it like I need oxygen and food.
Without it I cannot recharge and refresh.
Another thing I know.
Some people cannot handle silence.
They need to fill it with incessant chatter.
I sometimes wish that these people came with a "mute" button.
My ears become tired of listening.
We (my sister and I) share a room in Kidd's Beach. In the crazy rush to and from hospital in these past few days, I have come to cherish the quiet moments...the time I need to just relax and become silent. The little picture above could have been a picture of us. We can spend all day together, quietly doing our own thing. I realise how important it is to just be...no talk needed.
How do you feel about silence?
