...moment of silence...

i was listening
to this last night.
i am working with the songwriter/singer's dad.
i can't wait...he is going to be playing in a
town near me next month!!
 moment of silence.
"when life gets loud...
you gotta turn it down."
~brent james
when the sun shines.
we gotta chase shadows!!
"the learning of the
grammar of silence
is an art
much more difficult to
learn than the grammar of sounds."
~ivan illich
i wish you a moment of silence today.
just BE.

I haven't even been turning on the radio much these dayz...I'm tuned in to the sounds of Nature...she's my favorite rock star and last night the drums and cymbals took first place, she's first class. Boy was it humid yesterday, I got into my truck after work and the temp inside was 109, but I still drove home with the windows down, we have so little time to enjoy...but I leave the air on for Scratchy at home...SHE'S SENSITIVE...right!!!

I hope you get some rain soon, it has been glorious...hey Tilda with the blue fingers...how are the peeps???

See ya for coffee...s

The audience sees the performance, and we in the crowd see the concert as being so seamless, the artist makes it look so.

Yet, the performance is work, as is the practicing and amount of travel between venues is the tiring part of the business. To get that elusive yet needed moment of silence, that brief moment is to be savored by the artist

As we all need that moment for ourselves, too...

Nice shot to go with the title. I love how you always remind us to be still. Lately, I feel like I have to steal the time to be still.
