Peace & quiet

Reading this article made me begin to appreciate a bit more our family vacations to northern Minnesota, both with the kids and before them. Not so much for what we saw but for what we didn’t hear. Actually just the peace and quiet of nature. One of those times where you appreciate what you don’t have.

The article is entitled “Lessons in Stillness From One of the Quietest Places on Earth“ by Meghan O’Rourke in the New York Times Style Magazine. Unfortunately, this link might not work unless you have a subscription to the New York Times, so just go to your local library for it. It came out in November of 2017. It’s definitely worth the read.

Quiet in nature

So this was an interesting article tonight, so much so that it got me to thinking. When I’m out in nature do I listen to see if it’s really quiet? The article I read yesterday is entitled “Seeking America’s Quietest Spots: The Quest for Silence in a Loud World” by Jess Bidgood over at the New York Times.

I guess the next time I’m out, I will definitely listen.

Sincerely-
