Peaceful Silence - Usually it was at night, when we have spent the entire day together talking and talking and done everything, we would just lie together in silence after the goodnight and the night kiss and before the peaceful sleep cuddling.. This I call comfortable silence...

Heaven - Sometimes, the music is shut off. I curl up on my end of the couch, my laptop like a book, and I am just happy to be in the quiet. Away from noise. Away from questions, answers, and demands. My own comfort zone--my tree house in a Michigan first snow.

Silence Between Words - Comfortable silence to me means the silence between words. Those moments after intense communication when two become one, the kind that makes the relationship meaningful. The words are essential, but merely lay the ground work for the living silences.

Silence Speaks to Me!! - yes... I sometimes don't appreciate words. Leaving somethings unsaid saves a lot of trouble and sometimes it is not required to speak. And I talk to myself a lot (mentally) so I need pin drop silence at times. It helps de-clutter my mind.
