  1. When I think back to when I was young, with little kids, I’d turn on the TV first thing in the morning and keep it on all day. As if there wasn’t enough noise in the house, but I remember thinking that ‘it was like having company’. Now I live alone and keep the house quiet most of the day. Makes no sense.


    1. I think that makes perfect sense. As much as having little children can be fun and exciting it can also be exhausting and isolating. The sounds and chaos of small children are wonderful and maddening. So having different sounds around can be a relief. Now, you’re alone and you don’t need that relief. You are comfortable in your own silence. When I had small children I kept music on all the time. I hadn’t thought of this until your response, but I work alone at home all day now, in silence.
