“We come from a generation of people who need their TV or stereo playing all the time. These people so scared of silence. These soundaholics, these quietophobics.”
- from Lulluby by Chuck Palahniuk
Back in the Midwest, I spent a lot of my late afternoons/evenings here. With no music in the background, minimal conversation, no one making a ruckus nearby besides the geese and ducks, maybe a car or boat passing through every few of hours... Just us, a couple fishing poles, good beer, and all the needless static replaced by a sense of peace and feeling whole again.
