Hearing when there is silence

On Sunday afternoon, I was confined to the house due to a medical issue. Somewhere that afternoon, I decided to go sit by the pool where it was quiet. There’s very little about my life that is quiet. Between all the tasks, meetings, appointments, and drama, I find that quiet is almost unknown.

Last week, I was sick. I mean really sick. So sick that in four days, I dropped 18 pounds. In fact, I didn’t eat anything during those four days. I did drink water (after becoming seriously dehydrated) and was able to deal with a bit of tea.

A serious tragedy very nearly happened this week at the Cincinnati Zoo. Somehow a 4-year-old child escaped from his mother and wound up in the gorilla compound where he was snatched up by a 17-year-old male silverback gorilla. Zoo officials quickly made the decision to shoot the gorilla.
