picking up where i left off with terry tempest williams. short chapters but only one was meant to be consumed as a cosmically intentional reminder. snippets that were underlined and journaled-
• “the roman goddess of silence, angerona, held her finger to her lips as she stood in the posture of both pain and peace. my mother knew herself, and she kept her silence as a possession. it was hers alone.”
• “silence introduced in a society that worships noise is like the moon exposing the night. behind darkness is our fear. within silence our voice dwells. what is required from both is that we be still. we focus. we listen. we see and we hear. the unexpected emerges.”
• “”white is energy-impulse-it is question and answers-it is total in its spirit” writes richard pousette-dart. “white is something you endlessly return to.”“
• “…brutal rejection of solipsism…” solipsism underlined for lookup. a theory in philosophy that your own existence is the only thing that can be known.
nay. give me animism.
