The Wondrous Sound Of Silence

The quiet of dawn over the Grand Traverse Bay

Kish and I have been staying for a few marvelous days in our friends’ house along the Grand Traverse Bay.  The house is just north of Omena, Michigan.  It is separated from its neighbors by stands of trees to the north, south, and west; to the east stretch the wide and bright waters of the Bay.

The house has a great deck that looks out over the Bay.  It is perfect for a morning cup of coffee or an evening adult beverage.  As we have enjoyed our getaway and reveled in the beautiful view from that deck, we also have reflected on how quiet it is.  The perfect silence has made us realize how much distracting background noise is found in the hustle and bustle of our daily lives.  How pleasant to experience the wondrous silence now and again!
