      @Jazzer my friend. Super severe tinnitus is not easy to cope with. I'm sorry for all of us - you - me and others that have this monster at an extreme level. Having other physical problems with pain adds to the dreadfulness.

      It’s not really a quote but this poem by Robert Frost really resonated with me:

      Stopping by Woods on a Snowy Evening

      Whose woods these are I think I know.
      His house is in the village though;
      He will not see me stopping here
      To watch his woods fill up with snow.

      My little horse must think it queer
      To stop without a farmhouse near
      Between the woods and frozen lake
      The darkest evening of the year.

      He gives his harness bells a shake
      To ask if there is some mistake.
      The only other sound’s the sweep
      Of easy wind and downy flake.

      The woods are lovely, dark and deep,
      But I have promises to keep,
      And miles to go before I sleep,
      And miles to go before I sleep.

      This is beautiful, @Lynny. My favorite line is...

      "The only other sound’s the sweep
      Of easy wind and downy flake."

      Oh how peaceful it would be to venture into the woods and hear nothing but easy wind.....

      I longed for real silence
      the kind you can’t find
      but stumble upon
      in some cabin
      somewhere
      on a lake without a moon
      where you hear the cigarette burn
      and the candles flicker
      and your mind dances alive
      to the symphonies in the black.

      You are so right, @Manny. I am also a huge fan of the Anne of Green Gables series, in fact, I have no less than three copies of her book, all in various stages of wear.

      L.M. was a fellow Canadian, she did us all proud.
