Sitting in Silence

There is something about the sound of natural life happening while constructed life is silent that makes me feel incredibly peaceful.

I don't get to enjoy silence filled moments much these days with a toddler and a husband who both seem to despise silence.  But the moments where I can find myself alone, I revel in them.

Are you someone who loves to sit in silence?  Or do you need sound?
