    As an abused teenager this was me. This post has brought back memories of that ‘roaring’ silence I lived in. Phew good to know I found my voice.
    Great one liner post.

      Thank you, Tric. I’m sorry that it stirs up bad memories for you. Roaring silence – yes, I too have had silent times like those. They’re awful and frightening. It is nice however, being able to look back knowing that we overcame it.

    I don’t know the story behind this quote, but it sounds like a sad one. Shows how important communication really is.


  8. Rajagopal says:

    Sound attains meaning when punctuated by silence, as otherwise it is just cacophony…

    I’m glad you understand this. It may be in a different way than I do but it hit home with me.(or is that for me?)
