This world is too full of noise. Last night, I helped friends bake cookies. I enjoyed this, but there came a point when I started to feel that there was too much noise. I needed quiet. I needed to read a book and go to sleep. So, I took my leave.
There are times that I want noise, but often the noises I want the most are unavailable. They cost too much in so many different ways. More on that later, though.
