Journey Stone #11


Journey Stone #11  Silence

Once an enemy, I used to fear
the absence of sound was really
the absence of life. Now a friend
I seek, it comes to help me
sort this from that.

  1. Oh yes, this from that. I am quiet in the studio for several hours in the morning. Once I am into my work, Then I usually turn on the radio. I don’t listen to music too much, I am so picky. It has to be “right”, and that “right” changes everyday. I never know what will work for me….so just don’t even go there, usually.

      Annell, I used to have to have some sort of noise going on in the background for most of the time I was awake. Now, even though I love music, I seldom turn it on and not at all when I’m writing. Although I once wrote a poem about the evolution of silence, I am certain it was me that needed to grow and to evolve,



  2. Yes, silence is my best friend……….beautiful, Elizabeth.

      I had so many reasons for fearing silence, one of them being the loneliness it made me so aware of. Strangely enough, the less fear I had of silence, the less loneliness I actually experienced. Thanks Sherry,
