Ahhhhh...The sound of silence...

Just got back from walking the boy up to school.  Sweet Willow is curled up by the blue chair in my office and I am relishing the sound of absolutely nothing drifting down to me from upstairs.

With the kids back at school, it is time for me to get back to work.  On the agenda today?  A little story about the limits of humanity, the fragility and strength of dignity, the value of compromise and mutual accommodation,   the power of despair, trust and hope...oh, and a farmer and a vampire...

But first, a steaming cup of strong coffee and a little more of that intoxicating silence.
