Normally silence would bother me. I'd have to get out and do something, be somewhere amongst the crowds, the noise, anywhere but surrounded by silence.

Now, as I sit in the kitchen on this quiet morning, drinking my Diet Coke(okay I'm not a coffee drinker, but I love the way it smells), I can hear the hum of the refrigerator and my computer. The outside sounds are few and far between and yet, even those are quiet.

The sun is streaming in the windows and I can see the leaves that are left on the trees blowing in the breeze. It's a nice day, warm for this time of year. I have to laugh to myself because I know that literally 1 mile down the road, the people are shoving, pushing and grabbing at last minute gifts that they wouldn't normally buy anyway but, "I've got to have something."

And I sit here with the hum of the refigerator, the sun warming my back, in silence and I am whole.
