How would you imagine what silence looks like?
I would post a picture of the ocean, but I can’t think of the last time I went and took a photo besides some tiny village in Italy where nobody spoke English and we were driving through Italian countryside in a big rented van that kept breaking down. Which was like 3 years ago.
I do external communications for a living (aka promotional), and when I’m tired I view myself as a Redbull hype girl, which isn’t the case and nothing is wrong with doing that anyway. I’m talking to people I don’t know, or trying to mediate misunderstandings and attempting to rewire systematic communication problems. There is nothing natural about this, but to me, an inherently shy person, i guess my curiosity about human nature and the desire to make people welcome in the world swallows this.
I posted this picture because this is the gesture I’ve never been able to do to people—turn my back. I’ve always been an older sister, to one sibling living with mental illness and another 7 years younger.
Nobody talks about the moments of silence in religious texts—the Garden of Gethsemane, or the 40 day fast in the Judaean desert, to name a couple. It’s pretty much more popular to talk about how Christ or G’d is your savior or naming bible verses about loving people, which I’ve never been able to swallow because like a Coldplay song, that can mean a whole lot or a whole little. I wonder about the moments of silent though, the carving out of space which can be considered spiritual, and in which moments one has the wisdom to be able to make that discernment. #tgif
