Silence really is golden

It’s 4:30 in the morning, and my world is wrapped in silence. If you’re an early riser like I am, one of the things you probably like most about being up at that hour is the almost eerie quiet that is draped over the world. In a planet that’s increasingly dominated by noise -- it’s there, everywhere, the unceasing sounds of a million sources -- the early-morning silence of a pre-dawn day is like being wrapped in a cocoon of serenity.
