White noise is deafening. It’s so innocuous that it passes your awareness undetected. Its gentle yet persistent assault is so intense you become even more deaf to it as time passes. Whether the noise is on or off you are unsure. It seems quiet. Then the power goes out.
As your computer powers down, the TV goes dark and the lights disappear you realize the noise had definitely been present, but did you hear it?
What is the white noise in your life? Have you accepted as normal something that is really just noise? What would experiencing silence mean for you?
I hope your power goes out.
