Talking it over: The Sound of silence
It is amazing how loud silence can be and how blinding, darkness. Quiet and total darkness are pretty rare for most of us but when the electricity goes off in the middle of the night, you quickly realize how quiet and dark it can become.
I literally heard the electricity go off early Sunday morning. My alarm clock next the the bed made a strange noise as well as the satelite dish receiver box in the bedroom. Both made a clunking sound and then there was total silence.
