So here's to silence!

Just as putting something into words can make it appear more important than it is, exaggerate it. I think putting something into words can also marginalize it, make it smaller than it is. Or it is inexpressible as it is, and any attempt to express it shrinks it, or simply makes it sounds absurd.

But silence also is judged, and so we speak against the emptiness of silence.
Silence holds within it the depths of the heart, its joys as well as its anguish. It can hold the smallest of indifference's (which is fearful to me) just as it holds the deepest thoughts and cares. So here's to silence!
