trust silence

i noticed a while back that, out here, i snap to the sound of a vehicle before i see it ...
the silence is so vast, the sound of a motor really stands out ...

i thought about that one night when i was feeling a little apprehensive ... alone at the
ranch, in the dark, miles from neighbors ... but then i remembered the truck example ...
and i thought, why be afraid of seeing something that i have not yet heard or felt? ...

silence is like a web of motion detectors ... trusting silence is the opposite of fearing
darkness

Rule 1 - trust silence...you are safe in silence
Rule 2 - when there is noise, listen, don't look

this attitude helps when you find yourself in vast darkness ...
