Noise

Jun 25, 2018

It is quiet here now on the edge of this swamp, quiter than it has been in many years. Perhaps the level of background noise approached that when my father was a boy here 75 years ago. I live in the woods off a rural parish road and almost two miles from a major highway. Even so, typically a steady barrage of traffic sounds - mainly from log trucks on the highway - filters through the trees to persist as an annonying backdrop.
