As my grandmother used to say, "sound pollution" has become a constant in our lives. It's almost unescapable.
From the time I was single and still living with my parents, my twin sister and I entertained the idea of living in a studio apartment. Even though that never took place, years later, and now married, I finally had the opportunity to reside, for just over a year, in a studio apartment with my husband.
Does mundane indicate meaningless? Absolutely not. We can live life as deliberately as we wish, if only the focus is life. This is not settling for less, as we actually gain more life. Extraordinary or not, if devoid of purpose, life is not life, it is merely a time-killing existence.
