The Quiet

I love the quiet.

Perhaps it's because I never get quiet, what with three kids and a dog and an iPhone and all that stuff you have to deal with too. But the truth is that I loved the quiet even before all this. 

I need quiet to work. I need quiet to sleep. I need quiet to think. I even need it to be quiet so I can talk on the phone. 

I'm not antisocial -- at least, I don't think I am. But I need some stillness in order to thrive. Are you the same way?
