During a pause while the dentist was doing work in my mouth today, he was telling me something (I can’t now recall what). I asked him why he was telling me this. He replied, to my surprise, « Je meuble le silence. » (I’m filling the silence.)
So much in the news, in the movies, on television, on the screens of our computers and « smart » phones, in our heads, is filling silence.
Maybe that’s why I’ve slowed down the entries here, allowing more space/time between them? Or maybe not. Maybe I can write more often, with shorter intervals of space/time, and still not fill the silence. Maybe the words can indeed be present and silent.
Let me know what you think.
