On silence

Even when there's only an estimate of this beauty, there's silence in heaven for the space of half an hour. Unlike the vocal tributes and hallelujahs of so many sports fans. To understand through the gut magic.

There is silence and silence. We have to ask whether Cage comes to silence or if silence has turned out to be the hammer we all had expected (or rather, hoped for). It takes a few listens more to fall with the noose, to hear the delta calling. Will death eat itself?

If there's a silence in a room someone will try to fill it as soon as humanly possible. There are two ways in, addiction or escort of the Blind Guardian. Silence can be as final as the exquisite score.

There is silence as I sit here staring at the screen. A struggle happened and so much has changed.
