In the quietness

In the quietness

In time
In the quietness
We seek understanding
We gather connections
And we grow in awareness.
This is the harvest, the meaning,
As we journey into the land of the silent.

    I live for that place your have found and write about…the wholeness that fills the air while in solitude seems to be electrified with a marked spark. This life source knows secrets that haven’t been felt yet. This beauty that awakens in the grace of silence is my convictions tool that allows a seriousness of purpose to slip through the unconscious cracks so it may come to life.

    • thanks for the insightful comments. you are right about “…the secrets that haven’t been felt yet.” silence is my sanctuary though sometimes it is a bit intimidating…
