True Silence

Did you hear that?  Me either.  No humming of car engines, music blaring, or machinery working.  It is the sound of complete silence; a silence that can only be found in the wilderness.  Only when you truly focus, can you hear the leaves rustling in the wind, birds singing a sweet lullaby, and water splashing on shore.   These are the natural sounds of the world masked by the overwhelming sounds of civilization.  Take time to find a wilderness area and appreciate the true sounds of nature whether it is a small cove in a local park or a vacation to a National Park such as Isle Royale where I had such an experience.
