Can you touch smell?
Can you taste sound?
This could be a practice out of the prison of knowledge. The way into listening wonder. The story of not speaking for the pain of physical molestation of a young Maya Angelou. Closing down, no vocalizing, only listening.
Reading, reading, and listening until on the day she emerged from the ocean with her healing from listening.
To find speech from pain.
To come from stillness a non-violent wisdom.
