Sound of silence

I was standing outside waiting for Ryan to pick me up to go to Meme’s house, and while nobody was around, I noticed how terribly loud this city is. I heard the clicks of a car’s engine cooling down in the parking lot, the dull roar of I-10, and the layered sound of sirens streaking on roads I couldn’t see. And it occurred to me how used to the noise I’ve become, and how much I miss the quiet of being in a place where the quiet country is so close.

  1. Ugh, I know what you mean. I actually miss Sherman sometimes for that very reason–it was so nice and quiet out by my parents’ house. Even their new house in Hawaii isn’t that quiet, as it’s right next to a busy highway.
