Seems that silence, or rather lack thereof, is my main focus these days,. Conclusion: it’s very difficult to come by!! Case in point. Yesterday on our way to Pennsylvania we stopped at a restroom on the Merritt Parkway in Connecticut; all good. Electric hand dryers; all good. The sound of the dryer, however, was deafening. Um, nothing wrong with my hearing. Paper pollution, no; noise pollution, yes. I couldn’t get out of there fast enough.
