Beautiful Silence

The day's buzzing and throb of noise is incessant. It usually begins with the most annoying of all noises, the alarm clock. Though it may come in many different sounds it is made to be obnoxious. The day progresses with horns, hollers, bells, beeping, speaking, music, roaring, and so on. Each day has a variety of noises and obnoxious sounds. Silence is one thing we may crave. No noise, not even the sound of one's own repetitive thoughts. Beautiful silence to mark down the ugly noises of day. Since absolute silence is about unattainable as absolute zero, we make due with as little noise possible. The relaxing CD at the end of day, or meditating out in the wilderness. One noise source, one distraction, a lesser headache.
