Today I took the PT Cruiser for a drive on the back roads in the hills east of Livermore which included a segment of the first transcontinental road, the Lincoln Highway. The end points are located at Times Square in New York City and near the Legion of Honor in San Francisco. I stopped in one valley to look at a rock formation and the only sound I could hear was a steer bawling and a very faint rumble from a nearby interstate highway. Silence. Hearing no noise is something that does not happen very often in our busy world. Being happy in the moment.
