I love music, I love TV but I love the sound of silence even more. Right now both kids are napping and I am in heaven. Jim is at work so it's just me here and I don't hear a sound beside the hum of the refrigerator and maybe an airplane outside. I love it. I have never been a person who meditated, but I think right now I could sit on the floor, cross my legs and meditate.
My house is a mess right now but I don't even want to do anything that would make noise, even if it's just putting things away.
I'm sure I'm jinxing it by even writing about it, but I could listen to nothing all afternoon and be happy with it. I love my children, but I love the quiet too.
