Early Morning Conversation

Day 337…

I’m sitting in the front garden with the dog.

Why are you looking at me?

(blink)

Are you trying to tell me something?

(blink)

Princess, am I supposed to be able to read your mind?

(blink)

I just want to quietly sit here.

(blink, blink)

Yeah, like this.

Silence is a source of great strength.  ~Lao Tzu


Nowadays most men lead lives of noisy desperation.  ~James Thurber

Honk if you hate noise pollution.  ~Author unknown, as seen on a bumper sticker

    Noiseless solitude,
    Awaken in my spirit
    Your silent introspection.

    Speak to me of these,
    Treasured vict’ries and failures
    And all in-between.

    Life is most precious
    When lived with sense of purpose
    And not regretted.
