    Silence = Reality

    Everyday I try to avoid it. I do everything I can to drown it out. Turning up the speakers, listening to loud music, and my headphones always on. I try everything! I can't stand the silence! Whenever it's silent, it just reminds me that I'm alone. That I'm lonely. Silence opens...

    I don't hate silence it's just

    What Is Silent That Is...

    Well, let's be honest it never is actually silent...well rarely. There's almost always a bird chirping, fly buzzing, car passing, or branch scraping against something in the wind. Then there's the fridge, or the water softner, or heat that comes on. Once in awhile thought there...
