The Sound of Silence

It is almost and everybody in my household is asleep.

Sometimes i remain awake at this hour just to hear to hear the sound of silence and after a day of running after kids or their running after you, the sound of silence can be the most beautiful sound ever.

I love my kids but when you are a full time mom, you get very little time for yourself. And then there is noise of squabbling, television programs, door bells, ringing of mobile phones and sounds of vacuum cleaners, water running, dish washing, clattering of dishes, doors banging and what not.

At this time, i can only hear the sound of tick tock from the wall clock, soft rain falling outside and tapping of my keyboard keys.

I guess I still cannot hear the sound of after all. But this is still very calming and soothing for the soul.

Yes, I love that sound of silence, though usually, I feel guilty if I am up too late but there is a lovely sound of silence early in the morning too.

One of the reasons I'm usually up nice and early is that I can hear those sounds of silence. No TV. No music from the neighbors. No loudspeaker from the high school a couple of streets away.

I always feel so creative when my home is silent.

And that is the time to go for your midnight snack. I remember your saying that somewhere. I somehow do not eat that late. I don't think you will ever get a pin drop silence experience.

If I want to hear the sound of silence, I get up really early and then i put my headphones on. Just my headphones, unplugged from any device, - and I sit still and focus on my breathing. In just a matter of seconds, a wall of silence surrounds me and I can truly say, that I can hear the sound of silence.

Late nights are so beautiful because of the sound of silence.
