Silence And Time

"A quick glance at (the photograph) and we might walk away, thinking it drab and over-regulated. A slower glance, and (the photograph) reveals an infinitude of subtle hues and shifting verticals. Its beauty, like so much we see, reveals itself only in time. Silence is making--friends--with--time. It does not fight it or waste it; it refuses to run after it. Silence floats free with time, letting the pattern of the moments unfold at its own pace. It is a way of becoming free, not only for the practical advantage of being able to see the beauty in what is gray, for example, but at a far deeper level. In silence we break the hold time has on us, and accept in practice that our true home is in eternity."
