Writing engenders in us certain attitudes toward language.  It encourages us to take words for granted.  Writing has enabled us to store vast quantities of words indefinitely.  This is advantageous on the one hand but dangerous on the other.  The result is that we have developed a kind of false security where language is concerned, and our sensitivity to language has deteriorated.  And we have become in proportion insensitive to silence.

If one finds in one or two words matter which yields thought, relish and consolation, one should not be anxious to move forward, even if the whole hour is consumed on what is being found.

oh, how scary and wonderful it is that letters and words
can change our lives simply by being next to each other.

No Words

I spent some time in search of words
To explain what it is I feel
They continue to elude me
Though I long to express – and not conceal
How completely it is you move me
With everything you are
Unmatched – your beautiful soul
As it touches those both near and far
I called upon all poets
With hope I could define
How it is that you have changed me
By sharing your heart with mine
I realized that perhaps
The words simply haven’t been created
And recognized this lack of words
Is indeed how it can be stated
To love beyond words
