Sounds of Silence

Sometimes I forget about the sound of silence. At work, there is always the tapping on keyboards, questions being asked, chuckles from stares at computer screens, phones ringing, the whir of a hard drive. It's never silent there. Then I come home to hear my daughter's incessant chatter, the cat's meow, my husband the loud talker, a tv in the background, the zipper in the dryer clanking away. When the house is occupied, it is never silent there.

During the rare times when I am alone in the house, I stop to take in the sound of silence. The sound I am hearing now- calm, reassuring, .....Quiet.
