Contemplating Silence

Silence - so precious, elusive, and necessary for my life.

                      A few collected thoughts.

Silence is the field of creative musical intelligence that dwells in the space between the notes, and holds them in place.  - Guitar Craft Aphorism

A man is known by the silence he keeps.
Oliver Herford

True silence is the rest of the mind; it is to the spirit what sleep is to the body, nourishment and refreshment. ~William Penn

And with that I'll be quiet.

  1. When you think of it, there is much more space in the universe than stuff...much more silence than sound. I love these quotes and the way you ended the post was like the sound of one hand clapping. Thanks!
