having a blog rest

is the rest we take between two deep breaths”

“One of the tasks of true friendship
 is to listen compassionately and creatively to the hidden silences.
 Often secrets are not revealed in words,
they lie concealed in the silence
between the words
or in the depth
of what is unsayable
  between two people.”
