A Symphony of Silence

If you have good hearing, you may have found that just stopping to listen can raise the volume of even the quietest environment. I love listening to quiet places. My home, though, is not far from a busy main road. Every chance for peaceful, restful silence is something I never take for granted.

I notice sounds. I notice smells. All of my senses and aesthetic awareness are sensitive and I am mostly very grateful for that. I appreciate silence and stillness, most of the time.

The enjoyment of any music depends on the context and my mood. It often depends on the time of day, the weather, and whether I am alone or in company. How do you relate to sounds?
