Day two. Part one. Understanding.
We sit silently and watch the world around us.
For me, this has taken a lifetime to learn. To be able to sit next to one another and not say anything and still feel content. Silence is holy. It draws people together because only those who are comfortable with each other can sit without speaking.
This is the great paradox. I've begun to realize that you can listen to silence and learn from it. It has a quality and a dimension all its own.
I'm in love with these silence conversations.
