distance.

it’s been ages – i’ve been at a loss for words, so finally i’ve decided to dig them out anyway. i guess i’ve had so much to think about, so much to excite or occupy or stress me, that i’m left with nothing to say. and it has suddenly hit me that while my voice is silent, everywhere else is loud and blaring.

the noise. perhaps here is our biggest enemy. destroying peace, within and without, deadening thoughts, and silencing who we really are.

the truth is that noise is a really nice shield, a shield from everything that makes us afraid and uncomfortable. silence is uncomfortable, creating something new is uncomfortable, and making headway in life is uncomfortable, not to mention terrifying.

so i guess the question to ask is: do i want to be shielded, safe but silent, or open, uncomfortable, and singing out loud?
