When we are in the car I am always the one to turn down the radio, or I'll turn off the music if we are trying to have a conversation in the living room. Most of the time I can handle more silence rather than less.
I have inherited J's cold, my ears are full of fluid and I feel the pressure in my head. In the meantime S has been at work all evening and J went to bed early so I finished up the second coat that I started this morning. I have been insanely focused for several hours. With the quiet, the intense focus, and the muffling in my hearing I need some noise. I am not on a freaking retreat...I'm just at home.
Ahhh, what a wonderful thing. To be filled with enough silence. What a wonderful wonderful blessing.
Oh, and above is J's new coat!
