Sooooooo many people are afraid of silence, scared to listen to their thoughts. The sound of the world seems to frighten them into a state of panic. I wonder, what are they afraid of? Possibly, their own voice.

When I was much younger, I would fall asleep while watching television. Over the years I’ve discovered the benefits of laying down in a dark and quiet bedroom. From everything I’ve read, such behavior is healthy. By eliminating noise from the bedroom, we can program our brains to shut down on-demand.

I love music, and I definitely watch my share of movies. That said, I don’t rely on constant background noise to drown out the sound of my mind. For anyone who spends all of their time distracted by various forms of media. What’s really going on? In the end, Simon and Garfunkel had it right. The Sound of Silence.

Today, we drove from Texas to Louisiana. Once again, it’s time to do maintenance on the family cemetery. I love peaceful cemeteries. This particular location is surrounded by thick trees, swamps, and the Sabine River.

Sober is power!
