Winter Quiet - Missoula, Montana

"Have you ever heard the wonderful silence just before the dawn? Or the quiet and calm just as a storm ends? ...or the hush of a country road at night, or the expectant pause of a room full of people when someone is just about to speak, or, most beautiful of all, the moment after the door closes and you're alone in the whole house? Each one is different, you know, and all very beautiful if you listen carefully." - Norton Juster, The Phantom Tollbooth


  1. Love it! Right now I am enjoying a bit of silence before the hub-bub! Merry Christmas and a blessed New Year.

  2. Ahh, the delightful contrast of happy hubbub and the treasured sound of silence! (I didn't even think of the Simon and Garfunkel until just now!) Hapoy Christmas and a lovely new year to you, also,


Your thoughts, please?
