Nature is not exactly silent. Whether the wind in the trees or the tide make some kind of noise but that’s where I realize silence may refer here to “something” peaceful. If a dog was barking, or people shouting then the word silence would definitely not be accurate. The kind of silence I planned here is close to mind peace or even ear peace!
NB: rocks in the sea were photographed in Easter Island, the tree in “my” garden in Argentina and the quiet sea on the right in Normandy.
