One morning when I was 15 years old, I woke up to the Sound of Silence – and with that I mean, the actual song! It was long before iphones and even alarm phones with CDs. I’m not even sure CDs had been invited at that time, so it was a particularly pleasant surprise for me to hear this beloved song playing on the radio.
The Sound of Silence happens to be one of my favorite songs, and I remember feeling so immensely happy that day, and even writing about this experience in Swedish language class.
Even though this was such a small event – and let’s face it, rather insignificant happening in the whole scheme of things, for some reason, this is one of my fondest memories from that time of my life.
Now I think I know why. Because the actual sound of silence is the most peaceful state I know. Tonight in my yin yoga class, as I was floating out in immense peace, all of a sudden this song began playing in my head, and I smiled. With my whole heart and soul.
