The Sound of Nothing

My son is going to be leaving for AZ in a month and I will be living on my own. The thing that I am wondering about is the sound of nothing.

I am not one who has the TV or radio on for background noise. If I want to listen to music I turn the radio on, if I want to watch a movie the I turn on the TV. So in living on my own in my own silence am I going to long for the sound of another voice or am I going to be on overload when I go outside and am in a crowd or at work.

Or will I become one who turns on noise just to not have that alone feeling. I guess I will have to wait and see.

Then there is work. OMG this week at work I have the worst schedule I have today off then Thursday off, then Sunday off. I requested Sunday off for Pride.

Monday I had off and I slept for a total of 14 hours. I needed it.

I am one who has to have something on for the noise factor.... and so I don't feel so alone in the house....lol

I'm sure after the first 24 hours, you will be fine.

It's the sound of birds chirping in the early morning.

It's the cat snoring on the futon, and the hum of the computer as you read.

It's listening to your own breath.

Sometimes, silence can be a comfortable companion.

I think that I will be one who welcomes the silence. I have a lot of stimulation at work.

Thank you both.
