We live in a land full of hustle and bustle, noise, commotion, and coming and going. There is something to do, somewhere to go, and someone to talk to every minute of the day. Gone are the quiet woods, the peaceful countrysides, and the long winter evenings by the fireside.
Instead, telephones ring, computers and electronic gadgets beep and hum. Music is available on every hand. Even if we have chosen not to be connected to the television and the radio, our world is filled full to the brim with sound and activity.
