Hi all! So, it's been really quiet over in my neck of the woods, so I thought I might reflect on what silence means to me. Bit of a sparse connection, but I did warn you that I can be random in the blog description. Really random. I like nachos. That aside, for me, silence has a unique beauty to it, like that of a blank canvas. Like, at first glance, the canvas is just a canvas.
