I want to explore the silence between the notes. The space between the bars of a cage and the ‘down time’ between activities.

Whether it’s through sitting quietly by myself and letting my mind wander while staring out a window, taking a long leisurely walk in nature or even being with a loved one not having to say a word between us while driving down the highway.

Instinctively, I know there’s power in these times. There’s insight. Wisdom. But, I continue to get caught up in the race to . . . . I’m not sure where.

Many of my best ideas have come from my ‘down times.’ I can’t forget this.

We can all benefit from these times of ‘slowing down’ and letting silence gently blanket our minds and body in order to gain the clarity we could all use.
