The Sound Of Silence

Monday, November 09, 2009

This weekend we moved my combination bench/picnic table to another area of the yard where I can use it more. Today I did more leaf blowing and I rested on my bench and looked at the garden which has been put to bed for the winter. When I sat on the bench today I marveled at how quiet it is at this time of year in the country. Almost all the neighbors are at work except for one elderly woman a quarter mile away and me. There was little sound other than a squirrel or deer occasionally rustling in the leaves. No cicadas buzzing, no frogs croaking, no birds singing. Just complete peace and quiet. The sound of silence.
