Silence is relative

There is the silence in the forest spread amongst chattering crickets and groaning bull frogs

or the silence in Brooklyn at 3AM that waifs between the humming electricity and air conditioner murmurings.

Double parking is legal on alternate side parking day.

the thing you do.

no matter what it is that you do

make sure it is something you value doing,

because it will become your nature to do this such thing.

Make it a thing of beauty and grace.
