We have learned to fear silence.
The loneliness, the lack of progress.
When we learn to stop our chatter, pause our industry, we will hear what lays underneath what we fear.
The beat of our hearts, the breath of life, the creaking of growth, the groaning of decay.
When we sit with that thing, we fear, we learn what life really is.
In the learning we find new ways to sing and build around silence.
