The Noise [Nov. 8th, 2015|12:27 pm]
Tony Grist
My mother watches television from just after lunch until she turns in for the night. Today because it's the yearly celebration of militarism Remembrance Sunday she's started earlier. I won't say I never watch with her but mostly I keep my distance. Of course- small house, deaf old lady- I'm never out of earshot. Over the past two and a half years I've come to think of TV as The Noise.

One of the saddest things about contemporary life, I think, is the fact that The Noise is omnipresent in so many households nowadays.

I got rid of my TV cable years ago partly because of that ... but I certainly can't be self-righteous, because now I have a radio blaring for most of my waking hours. What do we all have against silence?

We're afraid of ourselves- of the thoughts that can come crowding in if we lower the screens.
