Silence is Beautiful
1
Have you ever heard the wonderful silence just before the dawn? Or the quiet and calm just as a storm ends?
Or perhaps you know the silence when you haven't the answer to a question you've been asked, or the hush of a country road at night, or the expectant pause of a room full of people when someone is just about to speak, or, most beautiful of all, the moment after the door closes and you're alone in the whole house?
Each one is different, you know, and all very beautiful if you listen carefully.
