Silence and story

Remember on this one thing, said Badger. The stories people tell have a way of taking care of them. If stories come to you, care for them. And learn to give them away where they are needed. Sometimes a person needs a story more than food to stay alive. That is why we put these stories in each other’s memories. This is how people care for themselves.

A prayer I love speaks of echoing the silent music of God’s praise.

I came to love the prayer because I loved silent music first. In the ‘spaces between the notes’ I train my ear to appreciate an entire orchestra of story. Silence teaches me to live as a social being. I am not, we are not, here alone.
