SNR

Signal-to-noise ratio,
a measure used in science and engineering
to quantify how much a signal has been corrupted by noise.

"Signal to Noise" is also a song by Peter Gabriel,
and that's where the idea for this came from,
the fact that there's so much 'noise' bombarding us;
not just the aural noise
but also the constant demand for our attention
from advertising,
phones,
social media,
email.
The list is endless,
a constant stream of look at me!
no! Me!
answer Me!
no, Me first!

And it's nearly all meaningless,
ephemeral,
vacuous.

So do yourself a favour once in a while,
go and find a quite place,
switch off all the crap
and tune in to the peace and quiet.

Turn up the Signal.
Drown out the Noise!
