Embracing the Silence.

Embracing the SilenceThis week, my Wife and 10 month old Son departed for Montana to visit his “Abuelos.”

I will follow, but until then, we will be separated for nearly three weeks.  This is the first time I will be without my two favorite people.

Being detached is tough.  I broke down at the airport while seeing them off.

While I miss them terribly, I have decided to embrace the silence.

Parenting and lawyering are full time jobs.  Decibel levels are high and rest is intermittent.

I have suddenly been smacked in the face with silence

Rest, rejuvenation and reticence will fill my void until I am joyfully reunited with my little clan.

      1. What part of Montana? We spend the summers in my hometown of Whitefish.

      2. One of my greatest joys is to spend time alone fly fishing on small streams up here. Embrace the quiet!

        Paul, I know you are one to embrace the silence. :) Our family lives in Bozeman, MT. I guess by Montana standards, Bozeman is a “big city,” but as a native New Yorker, Bozeman is as spread out and peaceful as it gets. I enjoy our yearly get away there.
