I set up a fortress of solitude in the empty, small bedroom. At this time it consists only of a rocking chair, but I have vowed not to let a television, a radio, an ipod, a computer or any other electronic noise producing device inside its walls. I haven't been to church in ages, because I feel overwhelmed by the noise level of the 'worship' service. There is a good deal to be left unsaid about the virtues of silence and communion that emanate from silence.
At some point I envision taking the television, and maybe the radio, after Rush et al. have been banned, and setting them on the curb. I don't see any point in getting a new Hi Def television. The news is Pravda, what would be the point. I hope I am not the only one feeling this way. I really don't want to be an army of one.
