061513 Five Minute Friday: Listen…

I love to be home alone.
I love the quiet. I can hear the birds. I can hear my thoughts.
When the kids came over last week Chuck noticed right away how peaceful it was with no tv.
Lincoln is calm when he is here, in the quiet.
It’s refreshing to not have some kind of “music” blaring at me, unless I want it to be.
I think we have too much clamor – too much noise - and it makes us more aggressive & less kind.
When I get quiet enough to hear the dog’s tummy gurgle, I notice it.
I notice things when it’s quiet.
But it’s really not quiet. The icemaker drops it’s load with quite a racket.
Even the geese flying over make a cranky sound, although I find it delightful anyway.
The worst thing for me that breaks the quiet is the alarm clock – ugh.

This was written as a part of 5 minute Fridays over at Gypsy Mama Interested in linking up? Go over there for more information and to link up, but these are the rules: 
1. Write for 5 minutes flat on the word of the day – no editing, no over thinking, no backtracking.
2. Link back here and invite others to join in.
3. And then absolutely, no ifs, ands or buts about it, you need to visit the person who linked up before you & encourage them in their comments. Seriously. That is, like, the rule. And the fun. And the heart of this community..
Hope to see you on the Linky!!
