Of course, like most middle aged farts I like to listen to Radio 4 in the car. Or re-live Leonard's O2 performance with his 'Live in London' CD. However a lot of the time the radio is off, leaving me alone with my thoughts. And when I can find in, true quiet, for me, has a sweet quality that is more beautiful than any sound.
So I urge those of you who have the radio on all the time in the house or car and others who can't go anywhere without their MP3 players - try turning the sound off for a while. It can, at first, be scary to be noiseless and alone with yourself, but I've found that it can yield both intrinsic and extrinsic rewards.
