Have you ever been with someone who talks incessantly, but says nothing? I have and find myself longing for silence, if only for a short time.
I feared I was becoming something of a hermit, as I enjoy solitude, when a friend expressed much the same preference. Then, in the course of proofreading, I ran across an editorial decrying today's need for constant stimulation and the lack of appreciation for the home as a place of refuge, an island of blessed privacy where one can gather one's thoughts and become whole far from the "madding crowd" as it were.
So this week, I resolved to say - nothing, but then I guess it's too late for that. Enjoy your weekend and find a little time for silence and reflection. You might find you like it.
