Appreciate the Silence, Cherish the Sounds

When I go to bed, I don't count sheep. I count the seconds until I hear a human-made sound. It takes a while, but I'm usually asleep quickly. That's my silence. At dawn, the sparrows in our hedge awaken and start tweeting. Then our parakeets respond in their own bird language. These are the sounds I cherish in the morning.
