I love that you listen to silence too.
Hmmm. Love it! What is it saying? Whence does it speak?
Ha! Thanks, guys. And Benji, you listen to it as well!? Ah, I'm so glad!Oh, and what is it saying? Well, it's hard to translate, because once you say it, it stops being silence, you know. :) I guess the general effect of my listening to it, however, is calming down and getting a broader perspective. It speaks from that broader perspective, I think. From objectivity and what you know is true, rather than what's staring you in the face or yelling in your ear at any given moment. I could go on about it, but I suppose I should save it for another poem sometime. :)
