Stretches of time where there is silence and not a whole
lot of activity. Quiet time. Quiet time. Intimidating
sometimes, this quiet time. It is unusual not to be
moving about and doing. Sitting still is frequently
unnerving, unsettling, confusing and confounding.
Boredom is a by-product of doing nothing at all, it
seems. Rushing about, looking busy, preoccupied
seems to be important and feeds what we know. Look
busy. Pretend if you have to. Stillness speaks. When
listening, stillness does speak. Long stretches of silent
time can create loneliness - or not. Stretches of silence.
Stretches of stillness. Coming home. Coming home.
