Second Thought

Looking again at news and commentary

The Christian Science Monitor

"Friendship is like music—sometimes the full orchestra, sometimes the chamber ensemble, the unaccompanied suite, or the pause between movements.

"Music is not only sound: silence is one of its elements. And silence is not a void. It can be filled with the glow of sound just heard; or promise of sound to come; the thrill of the unexpected; the poise of an interlude; or the poignancy of a told truth. Silence points up sound, prepares us for it, gives relief from it, enables beginnings to be born from endings.
