Is is ever really silent? I’m sitting here at the computer working on MySpace and there are a hundred sounds around me. First, I hear the hummmm of the computer and the ticking of my fingers on the keyboard. I stop….and I hear the crickets chirping outside. Blocking those out…I hear the soft sounds of my daughter breathing as she sleeps in the next room. The crackle of the candle burning on the desk mixes with the crickets….almost loud…far from silent.
