The Sound of Silence

Peaceful Sunday mornings remind me that one of the things I most like to hear is…absolutely nothing at all. The quiet is incredibly restorative, especially when I hear nothing but chatter all day long during the week. If all you hear is noise during the week (and even if that’s what you prefer), try to work in some quiet weekly, if not daily, even if it’s only for 5 minutes.

And because of the way my mind works (often in song lyrics), you get another gem for today.

Simon and Garfunkel from 40 years ago…


By Joy

I'm 42, a remarried mom of an 8 year old girl and a toddler son, a teacher, and a writer. People tell me I tend to be brutally honest and ...tell it like it is, so I had hoped to use this outlet to keep me sane while I got used to my new life as a stay-at-home Mom back when I was home with my worked. And it's been therapeutic through the end of a marriage and the emergence of me...


  1. Amen! Some people don’t understand what that need is like…and they’re probably the ones we need a break from! 💆

  2. I look forward to getting home at the end of a busy day where it is nice and quiet. No music, no TV, no computers for a little while so I can relax and unwind in the silence. 🙂

What's your 2 sense?
