Enjoy the Silence

{{silence. nothingness. infinite space.}}

I am reminded of John Cage’s controversial 4’33”, in which the musicians perform an entire composition…in silence.
The lacuna. The intentional silence. Meant to encourage tranquility. Or to create tension. It is the space in-between. An internal bein hashmashot. And though that space is intangible, its weight bears down on the soul.

It is here that I will re-envision who I am meant to be. And what Torah I bring to the world.
