I'm a silence freak. When my husband and I first started dating, I rarely watched TV or listened to the radio. Most of my free time was spent reading in silence. The silence never bothered me. I enjoyed it. Nowadays, my husband and the kids usually have the TV, the radio, and the computer on. When they are gone however, I still relish the silence. Silence gives me a chance to explore my thoughts, ideas, and creativity. I know it must seem self-centered to people who have a hard time being in silence, but there are those that do understand.
