"Conversation. What is it? A Mystery! It's the art of never seeming bored, of touching everything with interest, of pleasing with trifles, of being fascinating with nothing at all. How do we define this lively darting about with words, of hitting them back and forth, this sort of brief smile of ideas which should be conversation?" Guy de Maupassant

Sounds of Silence

Jack Vinson talks of Older and growing... and changing :

"Andy Butrrows has had an amazing experience. A Watershed : "Nothing has changed, and everything has changed. I'm learning to listen."

I find myself hearing that voice as I think about what I want to do, but then I don't take the time to sit quietly and listen to the voice."

I heard Sounds of Silence as i read his post :

"And in the naked light I saw ten thousand people, maybe more.
People talking without speaking, people hearing without listening.
People writing songs that voices never shared, no one dared disturb the sound of silence.

Fools, said I, you do not know, silence like a cancer grows.
Hear my words that I might teach you, take my arms that I might reach you.
But my words like silent raindrops fell and echoed in the wells of silence"

Listen.  Instead of falling prey to our neon Gods.
