Putting This One Next to the Cohibas

I must confess, I've always been a fan of silence.

It doesn't bother me very much, and it's nice and soothing.  What tends to make silence creepy is the insertion of little tiny noises that you can't notice when things are in their usual loud state.  It's very Hitchcock, I suppose, and it's not very relaxing.

But a lovely silence like right now– both little Meows down for a nap and Mama Meow tap-tap-typing away with only the hums of the computer and the fridge to keep me company– is one of those little treats that I wish I could store away in some cool, secluded chamber or soul's humidor of sorts to pull up when I'm feeling mad as a hornet and about to send out the pheromones to the hive.

This reminds me, also, that I have not wished my blog a Happy Birthday.  It is now four years and two months old (minus a day).  I'm not sure what this all means, except that having a blog?  It is really really cool.

Anyway, I hope you all out there in the blogiverse have a happy Wednesday!  Toodles!

  1. Four years of blogging! (And two months.) Wow! And yeah, having a blog is really cool. Your blog is especially cool.
    Your mention of the creepiness of those little tiny sounds reminds me of getting used to living out in the country. It can be positively *loud* out here at night, what with the various creatures chirping, croaking and rustling. I have to say that the first few times I was out walking the dog at night spooked me a bit.

  2. Right back atcha, Honey! Congrats on your blogiversary plus some. 🙂
    I, too, am a big fan of the quiet. Especially in the midst of deafening everyday chatter. Too much makes me a little squirrely but it definitely takes a while to get to the too much point.

  3. Sorry to have been MIA, comment-wise, but the breast pump permapost threw me off. I thought you hadn’t been updating. My bad!
    Happy Blogiversary!

  4. Happy belated belated blogday !
