Most of the time, where we live…all of us, we are conditioned to some ambient noise. It can be road noise, air conditioner noise, or TV noise. We are startled when the electricity goes off for some reason and all the noise stops. Even street lights are dark, clocks are stopped, even all the blinking lights we are so used to have gone out. We are in total silence.
Imagine living far away from any noise at all. Imagine that the refrigerator or water heater coming on occasionally is all you hear. The only noises aside from that are the birds declaring territory or searching for a mate. The noise from the creek or the noise from rain on the roof can be deafening, but wonderful. Deer clatter through the woods when they are spooked by something.
And the whipoorwills wake us up in the morning.
We live in such a place. It is divine.
