New places… Night time… And sleep…

New places can be a little unsettling… Even though some things stay the same, still it seems, everything is different…

It’s not that the place is new, exactly… I have been working in and driving around the city for a year and a half… But now I am also living here…

And the house I am now living in is not exactly new to me either… I am renting it from friends with whom I visited many time while they lived here… But now, they have moved… and I live here…

And… it is so quiet here…

In my old city, even in the dead of night I heard sounds… traffic sounds, if nothing else… But not here… There are not a lot of external sounds to be heard in the quiet of the night…

Sometimes, that’s a good thing…

Except tonight, while many in the world are sleeping, and silence seems to fill and surround my new home… I cannot seem to turn off the sound of my own thoughts…

They aren’t bad or troubling thoughts… Just stuff… memories and plans and hopes and dreams and things I need to remember for tomorrow and…

Well… you get the picture…

Maybe now that I have written this, shared it, I’ll be able to put my thoughts aside for a short time… Turn down the “sound” and turn my mind off… And go to sleep…

Good night, all…
