Uncomfortable Silences

Today I am sitting in a meeting at work when one of my bosses starts talking about embracing the "uncomfortable silences." My brain instantly left the room and wandered on a separate journey...one that only included only me and my thoughts, my worries, my fears, my need to fill in the blanks for everyone around me, how I do not let the silences speak for themselves. Its been months since my last post, months since my last work, months since I've been in my studio, months of silence. Inspiration is around but scattered, leaving me to over illustrate my past self as a resume to fill the now existing silence...really all I need to do is embrace it, let it exist, in others, in me...its not something that needs to be fixed or filled, but rather allowed to exist...one may be amazed at what the next noise may actually bring. Suddenly I want to listen more then I speak...

don't ask me why, but this made me think of that freddie prize jr. movie with that girl and the hackey sack performance art---- be silent, be still.

Inspired! Nilea Alexander, I saw your house in Real Design magazine and said, that sista is the future and the past moving through the present.

Keep creating and bringing life back to fashion. I am not a fashionista but your style makes me want to experiment with the things that make me feel pretty.

Keep it up

Wonderfully put, I too feel the same way! To listen is a skill of its own.

Much Blessing

Such an interesting post! So glad to have come across it just now.

There is definitely something nourishing about really listening to the silence, and so much creative energy is there just waiting for us to claim it.

The trick is not to numb it over, get lost in a black hole.

Thanks for sharing this thought!
