100 Theme Blog Challenge No. 15: Silence

As I’ve said before, when I have to resort to my 100 theme challenge posts and the like, it usually means I’m low on ideas.  Usually.  Right now, I’m actually in the mood for a nice random prompt to get me writing, and today’s theme is #15…silence.  There is something to be said for silence.  The world is such a noisy place, with so many people and traffic and…leaf blowers.  Yes, even leaf blowers.  (What happened to a good, old-fashioned rake?  On second thought, why don’t we just leave leaves alone?  That was a weird sentence….)  There is too little silence in modern life, and sometimes, I feel like I’m one of the only people left on the planet that still enjoys it.
