Have you ever been in total silence?
Throughout our wonderful travels, my wife and I visited the Carlsbad Caverns in New Mexico. You could go down a elevator or walk the trail into the cave; it was all downhill.
Viewing the fabulous scenery going down and then getting to the bottom and viewing the Chapel and other rooms, the guide told all of us to get near a hand rail so he could turn off the lights. That is one moment in a person’s life when it is as black dark and as absolute silence you will ever witness.
