Simple Pleasures

When I went to bed last night it was so quite. No TV, dogs barking, cars in the distance. Just the wonderful sound of night. One of the things I like about a quiet summer evening is the sound of the crickets and other night sounds.

I layed there for a long time just listening to that beautiful sound. Something so simple made me feel so calm, happy and brought back wonderful memories of my childhood.

Mom is originally from Virginia and every summer we would make a trip to visit. My grandparents, Mom & Pop, lived on a farm and had no air conditioning. I remembered all the nights I spend in the old farm house with the windows open hearing nothing but that wonderful sound.

Funny how something so simple can make you feel so great.
