Silence Descends

I'll have a nice, quiet weekend here this weekend, as the moderately busy street my apartment is located on becomes abandoned: the bridge it leads to is closed from now until Monday at 6 am.

I now get to enjoy birdsong instead of traffic noise. Ahhhhhh!

(It's amazing how much noise the windows manage to block when they're closed... but they're not closed in the summer.)

Ahhh. Quiet.
Lately I've been thinking that we as a society forget that there is such a thing as noise pollution.

Yeah. I *so* love it up at the lake. The silence is *so* wonderful... well, when my family lets me take the batteries out of all the ticking clocks, that is. ;)
