    Somedays I wish I didn't have to say a word to

    anyone. That it was understood I was going to be absolutely silent. Better yet on that day no one can speak to me either. Oh how marvelous this sounds.

    Whenever I am in a quiet place,

    I feel most at ease and peaceful. I like to think about the day and wonder what tomorrow will bring.

    Today has been a day of silence.

    No tv. No music. Just the beautiful silence.

    It has to be quiet before I can fall asleep!

    Even when I'm awake, I like it quiet, heck I don't even like to hear the heater fan and the air conditioner running, let alone some ones loud music and tv.

    Soon I'll be living in upstate New York!

    It's a nice quiet neighborhood. I can't wait. I currently live in the ghetto in Southern California. The noise is maddening. One month to go I can do this!

    I Love Peace and Quiet

    I especially love a little Peace and Quiet while working though I rarely get it. I can get so much done at work if I can hide in a corner somewhere with no distractions. It's almost unheard of in my field but whenever possible when I have a lot of catching up to do I hide...

    I love peace and quiet. I think it's great to not have to have constant noise, whereever you go or live. That's one of the things I really love about the country versus the city. No loud music, no busy traffic; I enjoy sitting on my porch, rocking in my rocking chair and just...

    Free To Think Clearly

    Only recently I became a person who admires quietness so much! It is because my brain has been complaining a lot about the load of info and pressure thrown at it, I just get disturbed very easily now, I wasn't always like this! I remember back at high school, I loved listening...

    When, during my journeys through life,

    I had to live in various cities I truly hated it. Sure, stuff was close by, but I felt choked, and true privacy was totally lacking. That's why when I retired, I practically begged my wife to let's come back down to good ole' Alabama and get a nice place in the country. We...

    In Such Short Supply These Days...

    My favorite thing in the world to do is run. A good long run is the best especially when it's on a quiet trail. Other than that I love to chill and read outside with some Hawaiian slack key playing in the background. Problem is that society today is based on go go go and louder...

    There's nothing quite like it.

    When you have little kids running around and having to deal with work and the rest of the world, finding just that little piece of peace and quiet is so amazing.

    The Joy Of Your Own Space

    Since my late teens I lived with an aunt, first when I was at college and then for work. We got on pretty well, but she gave me very little privacy. I have a lot to be grateful to her for, as after my mother died when I was in my teens she saw it as her role to mother me, which...
