"I have known a stillness, absolute, profound,
this pen across this paper makes a racket.
I have known a quiet so complete,
if I turn my head
my hair against my collar makes the only sound.
I may not know the byways of great cities, or the chatter
at the parties
of important people, but here on Judevine Mountain
I have known a solitude and stillness so profound
that my own breath
is the only evidence there is any life around."
And this from Greg Hindy: "Loneliness is longing for company, solitude is to forget you are alone."
Have a good, quiet fall weekend, everyone.
