Sounds of Silence

Jon Hunter's avatar Jon Hunter

How many times have you thought ' I NEED TO FIND A QUIET PLACE ' to get away from the din of daily life, to find your way on a hike through the woods, a walk down the beach, to sit on a rock in the mountains enjoying the silence. But is it really silence or have you just traded the noise of humanity for the sounds of nature. The sounds of nature can be as deafening as the noise of the city…but somehow different. The rustle of the wind through the trees and tall grass, the trickle and rush of water in the creek and the sound of animals, birds and insects that you can't see going about their business. These sounds humans have listened to since the very beginning of time and they have become a part of who we are so it's only natural for us, as a part of nature, to seek out these quiet places to refresh our spirit and carry on with the business of being human.
