Companionable Silence

There's a lot to be said about relationships where the conversations just flows on and on effortlessly. With some of my very best friends I find that we can talk endlessly about anything and everything. I wouldn't trade any of those relationships for anything, but what I never really took the time to appreciate a different type of relationship; a relationship that thrives on quiet.

In a lot of ways, my little brother and I are very similar. We enjoy a lot of the same books, movies, and television shows as well as certain hobbies and topics of thought and conversation. Our greatest similarity though has to be our enjoyment of quiet. We're definitely both people who like being plugged in to our varying devices, but often being plugged in can make us seem removed.
